I am interested in broad aspects of igneous petrology, the earliest history of our planet, and how these processes relate to other Earth systems. Below are examples of research directions that I am currently pursuing.
The main thrust of my research has been, and will continue to be using integrated petrology, isotope geochemistry, and new mass spectrometry techniques to answer fundamental questions about when and how the continental crust formed, with emphasis on the early Earth.
Ultimately, I am interested in developing projects and collaborations in the areas listed below as well as any other areas. If you have questions, comments, or other ideas please get in touch!
