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.Read More
We pursue topics related to the early Earth, lunar formation, the origin and evolution of Earth’s volatile budgets, chemical cycling between deep Earth and surface reservoirs, the nature of mantle heterogeneities and chemical constraints on geodynamics.Read More
Our new paper about Xe isotopic constraints on volatile recycling was accepted at Nature -- watch this space for updates!
