Welcome to the Wicks Lab!

We conduct high pressure experiments to better understand the structure and evolution of planetary interiors. Using a combination of static and dynamic compression, we explore the response of minerals across orders of magnitude changes in pressure, temperature, and timescale.




We are looking for passionate and driven scientists and scientists-in-training!
Openings exist at the undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral scholar level.
To apply, send an email to wicks "at" jhu.edu with a cv and a cover letter describing your research interests. Potential postdoctoral scholars should also include a 2-page research proposal for work in the field of high pressure.

Prof. Wicks is teaching AS.270.222-Mineralogy in the Spring Term. It will consist of two lectures and a lab each week (TTh 1:30 - 2:45 PM, W 1:30 - 4:30 PM), and cover topics relevant to mineralogy and mineral physics: identification, material properties, current research frontiers. For more information visit the class website here.
----- important note: this course will be a prerequisite for Prof. Wicks' Advanced Mineralogy class in fall 2018.

We are pleased to announce the inaugural Mineralogy Lecture Series. Subscribe now for more information and updates on the Spring 2018 lineup!

We are helping organize the 2018 Mach Conference, which will be held in Annapolis on April 4-6, 2018. Visit http://machconference.org/about/ for more information. If you are an undergraduate student interested in attending, email Prof. Wicks to inquire about funding support.
