Research Interest

I am a low-temperature aqueous geochemist. My work focuses on understanding the physicochemical processes controlling incorporation of trace elements in minerals and the distribution of their isotopes in mineral-fluid systems. I combine laboratory experiments, first principles simulations, and observations of natural samples in order to develop and improve environmental proxy tools. My work employs state-of-the-art experimental techniques and high precision measurements of metal isotopes to generate mechanistic insights into mineral growth and isotope fractionation. Additionally, I apply metal isotopes to study carbon capture and storage in natural analogues, weathering processes, and biomineralization.

Keywords: metal isotopes, aqueous geochemistry, environmental proxies, mineral growth
