Research Interests

My main interests lie in radiogenic (Nd, Sr, Pb, Hf, Re-Os, W, etc.), and non-traditional stable (Fe) isotope and trace element geochemistry in intraplate volcanic systems and convergent margins. I am also interested in developing novel applications of these data in conjunction with computational and geodynamic methods to better understand the compositional heterogeneity, reservoir distribution, and behavior of the Deep Earth.
