Summary

My research aims to understand the formation of the solar system - how it evolved from a cloud of gas and dust to the Sun, planets, asteroids and comets we see today. To achieve this I use a range of analytical techniques to investigate the bulk- to nano-scale mineralogical, chemical and isotopic properties of primitive meteorites and samples returned by spacecraft from asteroids and comets. In particular my interests include extra-solar and solar dust in the proto-planetary disk, low and high temperature alteration of meteorites, and the relationship between meteorites, asteroids and comets.
