We investigate the formation and evolution of Earth and other rocky planetary bodies and how the interior processes influence the surface chemistry and habitability. The primary approach of our research is laboratory experiments and geochemical analyses but we also use thermodynamic and other modeling approach.

Research Areas

Magmatic processes in various tectonic settings, mantle melting, planetary volcanism, deep volatile cycles of Earth and other terrestrial planets, origin of volatiles, planetary differentiation
