Portrait of Max Collinet

Dr. Max Collinet

German Aero Space Center Berlin (DLR)


I am an igneous petrologist experienced in the study of achondrite meteorites from Mars and asteroids, high-pressure/high-temperature experiments and the modelling of deep magmatic processes. I work at the department of planetary physics at DLR where I couple petrologic and geophysics modelling (mantle convection) to constrain the formation of the Martian and Lunar crusts. I collaborate primarily with the A5 team to model, with Sabrina Schwinger, and using constraints from Cordula Haupt and Jonas Schneider, how the lunar magma ocean crystallized. With the C4 team, I work alongside Irene Berndt and other DLR scientists to model the formation of the secondary (basaltic) lunar crusts.
