I am interested in using meteorites to explore the history of our early solar system!

My research focuses on examining at the components of chondritic meteorites – some of the earliest, undifferentiated solids formed in our solar system – to investigate how mixing of solids occurred in the protoplanetary disk. This has important implications on the early structure of our solar system, and can help explain the chemical composition of the planets and meteorites that we see today! I aim to do this using a variety of experimental techniques, including mass spectrometry and X-ray fluorescence mapping.

I am also interested in exploring the volatile content of chondrites, as well as using bulk magnetic techniques to investigate the magnetic mineralogy of meteorites.

I am supervised by James Bryson and Jon Wade, and am funded via the STFC studentship.
