Research interests:

I study the chemical properties of materials under high pressure and high temperature conditions, to better understand the constitution, structure, and evolution of the Earth's interior. Specifically, I am interested in the role of volatiles in the deep Earth, and how they affect and explain the chemical properties of the Earth's interior.
