Research

I work with Jennifer Jackson on characterizing the material properties of deep Earth minerals under extreme pressures and temperatures. My interests lie in exploring compositional origins for heterogeneities observed on both sides of the core-mantle boundary. I have measured a well-constrained thermal equation of state for iron-rich (Mg,Fe)O within the context of ULVZs and am now beginning a series of melting experiments on various iron-rich phases.
