I am a geochemist who is fascinated by the fundamental processes that drive the chemical and physical evolution of the Earth's crust and mantle. Through a combination of fieldwork, isotope geochemistry and numerical models, I study how heat and mass are transferred through the continental crust and mantle. Recently, I moved to Penn State to start a tenure-track faculty position and build a research group. Beforehand, I held a NERC Independent Research Fellowship at the University of Oxford, where I worked on using noble gases to trace the Earth's subducted water flux. I moved to Oxford from the University of Texas at Austin, where I developed and applied new chronometric tools to trace the temperature evolution of the deep crust. This work stemmed from previous experience in radioisotope geochemistry as a post-doc at the NERC Isotope Geosciences Laboratories, Nottingham, and as a PhD student at the University of Cambridge.
