Geochemistry and Petrology

Studies of geochemical processes that operate at different spatial and temporal scales on Earth are important to understand planetary evolution. Our research uses cutting edge geochemical and petrological methods to better understand the behavior of elements in a broad spectrum of geological systems, ranging from nano-scale processes to translithospheric systems – on Earth and beyond.
