Research Interests

Geochemical evolution of the mantle, especially isotopic and trace element chemistry of minerals in ultramafic and mafic inclusions in basalts and kimberlites, as well as mineral inclusions in diamonds; kinetics of geochemical processes such as kinetics of crystal growth and trace element incorporation; in situ chemical and isotopic analyses of geologic materials with secondary ion mass spectrometry techniques.
