Joerg RennerThe RAS is pleased to introduce the new Editor-in-Chief of GJI, Prof. Joerg Renner. 

Joerg has been on the editorial board since 2007. After his dissertation at the Ruhr-University Bochum (RUB), Jörg Renner held postdoctoral fellowships and appointments at MIT and GFZ Potsdam before he became Professor for Experimental Geophysics at Ruhr-Universität Bochum in 2001. His major research interests are in two strongly linked topics, subsurface fluid transport and rheology of rocks. He addresses problems from groundwater flow near the surface, to oil, gas or geothermal energy production from the upper crust, to melt transport in the Earth's mantle by performing and analyzing field and laboratory experiments.
