Dr. Rita Parai
I am a high-temperature isotope geochemist who primarily uses noble gases to address questions about how planetary bodies form and evolve over time. Explore these pages to learn more about my research group, our laboratory facilities and the research we pursue.
We pursue topics related to the early Earth, the nature of mantle heterogeneities, chemical constraints on geodynamics, volatile origins and transport on Earth and other planetary bodies, and planetary atmospheres.
Graduate study at WashU
