The Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań and the City of Poznań would like to invite you to a public lecture given by Prof. dr Leonid Dubrovinsky. The lecture entitled "Journey to the center of the Earth 150 years after Jules Verne: Science - not fiction" will take place on September 5th (Tuesday) at 6:00 PM in the Auditorium of the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, at 1 Wieniawskiego Street.
Prof. dr Leonid Dubrovinsky graduated from the Faculty of Geology of the Mikhail Lomonosov Moscow University in 1983. He defended his PhD thesis in 1986, under the supervision of Prof. Vadim S. Urusov, at the same University. He received the status of "venia legendi" of the University in Uppsala, Sweden, as well as the University of Bayreuth, Germany. He is currently the Director of the Bavarian Research Institute of Experimental Geochemistry and Geophysics (Bayerisches Geoinstitut) in Bayreuth. He is interested in matters relating to high-pressure tests of important geological materials, chemistry and physics of solids under high pressure, development and creation of new apparatus and devices for tests conducted in high pressure and temperature. Leonid Dubrovinsky received the "Gregori Aminoff Prize in Crystallography 2017 of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences" (referred to as the crystallographic Nobel Prize) for creation of a new methodology for experimental high-pressure and high-temperature structural tests.
