Research Interests

My research is driven by the need to understand how the chemistry and rheology of the Earth's mantle evolve through time. I use a multi-disciplinary approach to study direct samples of the mantle (peridotites), as well as mantle-derived lavas. In particular, I analyze the elemental and isotopic chemistry of mantle-derived rocks to understand geochemical processes in time and space, study the crystal physics and microstructure of mantle rocks to unravel their deformation history, and perform laboratory experiments to re-create P-T conditions inside the Earth.
