Research Interests

During my PhD I focused on understanding the early magmatic and impact history of the Moon through a multi-technique investigation of zircons separated from Apollo samples. During my postdoc I will expand my research to include samples from other planetary bodies with a focus on understanding the impact signatures and atmospheric evolution recorded by Martian meteorites.
