My research interests lie in the application of non-traditional stable isotope techniques to planetary sciences. In particular, I am interested in constraining the composition and types of materials which accreted to form planet Earth and the other rocky bodies in our solar system, and how the terrestrial planets evolved from undifferentiated masses to differentiated bodies, with silicate mantles and metallic cores, and in the case of our planet, with liquid water and sentient life.
