Marine Chemistry & Geochemistry
I am primarily interested in the organic and inorganic geochemistry of hydrothermal fluids, in particular:
- Sources and transformations of organic compounds in hydrothermal solutions
- Constraining abiotic interactions between carbon and sulfur species in hydrothermal fluids and their implications for conceptual models for the emergence of life
- Experimental hydrothermal geochemistry
- Influence of magmatic volatile degassing on hydrothermal fluid chemistry in back-arc settings, such as the Manus Basin
