Current research interests

I am particularly interested in multidisciplinary approaches to constraining the fluid-mediated chemical cycling in subduction zones from the early Proterozoic to the present, using primarily field studies, metamorphic and igneous petrology and isotope geochemistry. I emphasize the extensive analytical, field and collaborative experimental approach to chemically and isotopically characterize the mobile phases and to determine key element distribution between coexisting phases. I focus on the analysis of fluid and melt inclusions, and minerals, from both high-P metamorphic and arc volcanic rocks, and on the cryogenic LA-ICP-MS analysis of diamond traps from high-P experiments.

I advance Laser ablation ICP-MS analytical techniques development to solve problems in the geosciences and materials sciences, with an emphasis on geochemistry to petrology to isotope geochemistry to hydrothermal geochemistry. See our review on the LA-ICP-MS analysis of inclusions in minerals (request the pdf)
