Research summary

My research focus on the role of high temperature fluids, gases and melts in the 1) geochemical cycling in subduction zones and 2) the formation of ore deposits associated with magmatic intrusions.

In particular, I combine in situ experimental technics (diamond anvil cell and high temperature autoclave) with Raman and synchrotron X-ray spectroscopies (SXRF and XAS) to investigate the solubility, speciation and partition of various elements (Cu, REE, HFSE, C-O-H-S volatiles) in high temperature fluids, gases and silicate melts.
