Welcome to my homepage!

I’m an experimental geochemist interested in understanding the trace element evolution of the solid Earth. My research seeks to quantify the rates (t) and conditions (T, P, fO2) of the processes that have differentiated the Earth’s crust and upper mantle, mostly through high-pressure, high-temperature laboratory experiments.

I am currently a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow with appointments at the National Museum of Natural History (Smithsonian Institution) and Yale University. In July 2020, I will start as an Assistant Professor at Cornell University.
