I am a PhD student in the Lundstrom Lab Group. My research interests lie in the fascinating field of cosmochemistry, with an emphasis on the stable Strontium isotopic analysis of the Allende meteorite, looking at isotopic diffusion and alteration/interaction between Allende's three main components: the matrix, chondrules, and CAIs (Calcium-Aluminum rich Inclusions). My work mainly uses SEM and MC and LA-ICP-MS.
