Personal profile

Research Interests

Having earlier trained in geological sciences, I have since developed broad interests with foundations in geochemistry and planetary science. My work involves contributing to, leading on, and diplomatically advocating for a range of impactful interdisciplinary initiatives that address fundamental and applied areas of planetary geological research intersecting with creative outreach, culture, ethics, and policy/law.

Interested students, postdoctoral scholars, and potential collaborators are encouraged to get in touch.

Example International Meeting:




I am happy to be contacted by the media to comment on important matters relating to planetary science and space exploration, and Earth's evolution and interior composition. As a member of the STEM community - not an expert in social and behavioural studies - I also take an interest in matters of diversity and inclusion in science. 

Examples of accessible contributions to science communication include:
