I am a PhD student with strong interests in geodynamics, geochemistry and the inner workings of our planet in general. I am using 3D, whole Earth scale mantle convection models to help gain understanding of geochemical observations that we see on Earth today. Specifically I am looking at the U-Th-Pb (Uranium-Thorium-Lead) system, the K-Ar (Potassium-Argon) system, and water in the mantle.
