  • Stable Isotope Geochemistry

I specialize in stable isotope geochemistry and have over 16 years of experience in the field. Current and past projects include: paleoclimatic history using carbonates from soils (caliche); geochemistry of zeolites and hydrous minerals; origin of Martian hydrosphere and atmosphere; meteorites; low-temperature geochemistry; petrogenesis of igneous rocks with special interest in Iceland
