Associate Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering and Earth Sciences
105A Cushing Hall
Areas of Interest
In-situ, high spatial resolution analyses of Earth Materials, Nuclear Forensics, LA-MC-ICP-MS-based research, geochronology, isotope geochemistry, tracing environmental pollution.
My research group is interested in:
- Developing innovative microanalytical techniques and/or novel methods for the identification of forensic signatures within post-detonation materials and natural nuclear materials for the purpose of accurate and rapid source attribution
- Characterizing the chemical and isotopic nature of Earth’s upper mantle through the investigation of alkaline complexes (carbonatites, alkali silica-undersaturated rocks) worldwide
- Geochronological investigations of igneous rocks and biogenic materials.
