EAS Research Professor Departs UH to Assume Research Faculty Position in Denmark
Returns to His Home Country after 9 Years in U.S.
Dr. Rasmus Andreasen, a research assistant professor in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences since 2011, has completed his research in the department and is returning to his home country of Denmark to occupy a research faculty position.
He will return to Aarhus University, the second largest university in Denmark, where he will be a research faculty member in the area of isotope geochemistry. His duties will also include management of the new Danish Interdisciplinary Centre for Plasma Mass Spectrometry.
Andreasen came to UH as research faculty from Imperial College London to work with Dr. Tom Lapen, an EAS associate professor. His research areas at EAS were geo- and cosmochemistry. Andreasen also managed the multi-collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometer and laser ablation facility which analyzes environmental and rock samples from the Earth, the Moon, Mars and asteroids. The facility is used by EAS researchers, visiting scientists and industry collaborators.
