I am currently a Postdoctoral Associate in Carnegie’s Department of Terrestrial Magnetism working with Larry Nittler. My research concerns the study of organic matter and presolar grains in primitive meteorites. I am most interested in carbonaceous chondrites and what their organic and presolar material can tell us about meteorite formation in the early Solar System and subsequent parent body alteration.

As an undergraduate I studied Geological Sciences at the University of Durham in the north of England. I received my PhD in Cosmochemistry from the UK’s Open University in 2009, and then completed a two year Postdoctoral position at the University of Arizona followed by a year at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa. My analytical specialties include SIMS (Secondary Ionization Mass Spectrometry), EMPA (Electron Microprobe Analysis), and Raman spectroscopy.


45th Lunar and Planetary Science Conference - I will be attending LPSC in Houston, Texas next month for the 8th consecutive year. I have posters in both the Tuesday and Thursday evening poster sessions. Come see me!
