Isotope geochemistry Mantle Diamond Craton
My interests lie in the field of mantle geochemistry, subduction processes & elemental recycling, and fluid-rock interactions & metasomatism. I use stable and radiogenic isotope analyses to study when diamonds form, the influence of recycled material, the composition of the mantle and volatile cycles (carbon, noble gases) through time. I enjoy developing (chemistry and mass spec) methods and improving blanks to analyze smaller samples. For my Banting post-doctoral fellowship I look at 'Tracing Earth's deep carbon cycle: integrating geochemical and geochronological analysis of super-deep inclusions and their diamond hosts as a step to track carbon mobility in the transition zone and lower mantle.'
