I am an assistant scientist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, where I study how Earth's crust and mantle have evolved over time using a variety of quantitative geochemical and geochronologic techniques. My research interests include:
Noble gas distributions in olivine from ocean island basalts to better characterize the deep mantle.
The duration of ultrahigh temperature metamorphic events that occur during continental collision by examining the roots of an ancient mountain belt in Madagascar and southern India.
Amagmatic decarbonation of lithospheric mantle in collisional tectonic settings by investigating metasomatic dehydration of the lower crust.
