The goal of my research is to understand the volatile history and chemical evolution of Earth. Specifically, I use stable and noble gas isotope systematics to understand the dynamic processes of subduction, mantle convection and surface volcanism, which control the redistribution of chemical constituents between the crust and mantle reservoirs. I am interested in addressing a diverse array of
geochemical questions, pertaining to both igneous and crustal systems. My primary
research focus has been on high-temperature geochemistry, crust-mantle
interactions and the behaviour of volatile fluids in the lithosphere. However, my most recent research focuses on using noble gas
geochemistry to better understand crustal systems, including hydrocarbon formation and transport mechanisms.
