Overview

We look at the chemical and isotopic properties of meteorites to understand the evolution of the Solar System. This is achieved by purchasing meteorite fragments and undertaking microanalytical work on them.

Our work has involved developing methods for examining the Martian mantle, meteorite characterisation, and examining chondrites for their early processes and shock metamorphism.

Please contact me to discuss possibilities.
