As a cosmochemist my research focuses on the origin and early evolution of the Solar System. Using high-precision isotope composition measurements of meteoritic and terrestrial samples, I investigate the provenance and genetic relationships of meteorites and their components, the timescales and processes of planetesimal accretion, as well as the formation history of planets and nature of their building materials.
