I am interested in planetary science and my current research focusses mainly on two topics:

  • The effects of impact shock melting on carbonaceous material
  • The thermal history of CM carbonaceous chondrites

 

The effects of impact shock melting on carbonaceous material

Impact cratering is a fundamental process in the solar system and has been proposed as a possible mechanism for the alteration of carbon leading to the origin and evolution of life. My research asks to what extent carbon is preserved in shock melted carbon-rich targets and what structural form the carbon takes after being incorporated in an impact melt.

 

Thermal history of CM carbonaceous chondrites

The CM carbonaceous chondrite meteorites probably came to earth from small icy bodies in the outer asteroid belt. These meteorites represent the most primitive material in the solar system and can give us clues about how the planets formed ~4.56 billion years ago. I study the composition and structure of secondary minerals within these primitive rocks to better understand their aqueous and thermal evolution.
