Summary

I am an SNSF PostDoc.Mobility Fellow at the University of Bristol where I am investigating the Ge isotope systematics of meteorites. My main research interests are:

  • Understanding the link between the origin and evolution of dust in the early Solar System and nucleosynthetic isotope variations found in meteorites.
  • Investigating the potential link between the mass-dependent composition of planetary bodies and nebular processes in the early Solar System.
  • Analytical development and data processing for isotope geo-/cosmochemistry.

Biography

Ouside of work I enjoy reading about things not related to my research, teaching myself how to sew and baking (Great Luzern Bake Off champion 2017 and runner up 2018).
