Profile summary

Professional biography

I have recently joined AstrobiologyOU as a Research Fellow. 


Research interests

My research covers a range of crustal processes on Earth and other planetary bodies in our Solar system from surface gas-rock interactions on Venus to understanding rock properties of deep crustal rocks and melting processes. Modeling the interaction of fluids with rock compositions in various environments such as in the subsurface of Mars or on Icy Moons is of special interest to explore the possibilities for habitable environments in our Solar System and is therefore my main focus within AstrobiologyOU.
