I'm an isotope geochemist primarily interested in early Earth processes and geodynamics. I use both radiogenic and stable istopes to probe processes that range from primordial mantle differentiation to origin and evolution of continents.

I use short-lived radiogenic systems such as 146Sm-142Nd to stduy the earliest occurences of terrestrial mantle differentiation. My current research focuses on understanding the origin and evolution of continents using the novel analytical proxy of Ti stable isotopes. The aim is to better unravel the geodynamic context of early continent formation and its subsequent evolution. More recently, I'm also developing an interest twoards understing the complex relationship between tectonics and biogeochemical cycles in the context of origin of life on Earth.
