Research Interests

Geochronology and geochemistry of planetary samples, formation and evolution of meteorites and planets, mineralogy and petrology of meteorites, isotopic and chemical evolution of the early solar system materials; nuclear forensics and attribution; and hydrothermal alteration and water-rock interaction in active and fossil hydrothermal systems and their relation to ore forming processes.
