Graduate Student

Research Description

I am interested in how planetary bodies formed and evolved in the early
times of the solar system. Specifically, I investigate the magnetic and
structural properties of meteorites to understand how planetesimals—the
building blocks of the planets—accreted, differentiated, and generated
magnetic fields. I am a collaborator in the science team of the NASA
Discovery mission Psyche.
