  • Understanding the formation and evolution of planetary bodies within the inner Solar System through petrological, chemical, and isotopic studies
  • High resolution chronometry based on short- and long-lived radionuclides to study the dynamics of the solar nebula, identify the chemical reservoirs and first stages of planetary formation
  • Stable and radiogenic isotope and trace element studies to unravel the bulk composition and differentiation of major reservoirs of terrestrial planets, and their impact histories
  • Development of new geochemical approaches and cutting edge laboratory techniques for MC-ICPMS analyses

  • B.Sc. (Earth Sciences) 2001 Université Blaise Pascal, Clermont-Ferrand, France
