I am a cosmochemist interested in the formation and evolution of the solar system. I use advanced microanalytical techniques to study the mineralogy and petrology of extraterrestrial samples and determine their chemical and isotopic compositions.

Research Projects

  • Al-Mg chronology and isotope signatures of chondrules
  • Presolar material in meteorites – origin, characteristics, distribution
  • HAYABUSA2: Macromolecular organic matter in samples from asteroid Ryugu
  • Formation and relationship of chondrules and matrix in chondrites
