FU Berlin - Geochemistry

Doctoral Student

My scientific interests comprise elemental and isotopic study of extraterrestrial bodies to constrain their formation and evolution, as well as processes occurring in the solar nebula. With an academic background in chemistry and geochemistry at the Ecole Normale Supérieure (Paris, France), I started a fellowship at the Freie Universität of Berlin within the TRR 170 program. I took part in a research project on siderophile volatile element distributions in lunar highland rocks using isotope dilution – ICP-MS (Subproject B1).
I am currently working on my doctoral project, focused on moderately volatile elements (namely Zn, Cu, K) in bulk carbonaceous chondrites and components therein. This includes the development of low-blank extraction and stable isotope analysis methods.
