About me

My research focuses on the understanding of the present-day physical and chemical structure of the Earth's mantle and crust as well as its physical and chemical evolution over geologic time.

Recent project work

Within the TRR170, I collaborate on projects that use high-precision W isotope measurements to elucidate the different processes involved in generating the 182W heterogeneities in the early Earth’s mantle.
