Larissa Huston

Larissa Huston received her Bachelor of Science from the Australian National University in 2014. During her final year, Larissa performed research on the high pressure phases of germanium under the supervision of Prof Jodie Bradby, Prof Jim Williams, and Dr Bianca Haberl. Larissa continued to do research in a similar area under the same supervisors, completing a PhD thesis titled “The high pressure phase transformations of silicon and germanium at the nanoscale” in July 2019. In August 2019, Larissa joined the Static High Pressure Team of the Shock & Detonation Physics group (M-9) at Los Alamos National Laboratory as a postdoc. In this position, she is using dynamic diamond anvil cells to study high pressure phase transformation kinetics.
