Recherche/ Research interests

  • Geochemical investigations of planetary differentiation processes (Earth, Mars, Moon) using short-lived and long-lived isotopic systems (146Sm-142Nd, 147Sm-143Nd, 176Lu-176Hf and 40K-40Ca)
  • Chronology and processes involved in the evolution of the mantle-crust system during the first billion years
  • Investigations of global geochemical cycles in the early Earth using the Archean sedimentary record
  • Development of novel isotope techniques using high precision mass spectrometry
