My research focuses on using meteorites to unravel the early evolution of the solar system. Specifically, I am studying how the chaotic disk of dust and gas that existed in our solar system immediately following the ignition of the Sun transformed into an organised collection of orbiting planetary bodies, and the early thermal and chemical evolution of these bodies. I do this by studying the magnetism and chemistry of a variety of extraterrestrial samples. 

The Speaker

My name is James Bryson, and I am a planetary scientist working in the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Oxford. I did my undergraduate and PhD at the University of Cambridge before conducting post-doctoral research at MIT and Cambridge. I started as the Assoicate Professor of Mineralogy at Oxford in January 2020.

  1. By comparison with our solar systems distribution of gas giants, would it be possible to infer the likelihood of earth like planets in other systems by the distribution of gas giants in these systems which are more easily detectable with current techniques?
