Postdoctoral Research Associate, The University of Arizona

I am a postdoctoral research associate working with Prof. Tom Zega in the Lunar and Planetary Laboratory at the University of Arizona. My research interests focus on the building blocks and early history of the Solar System history, and the origin of life. I use in situ ion- and electron-microscopy techniques (e.g., secondary ion mass spectrometry, focused-ion-beam scanning-electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy) to study the composition and origin of circumstellar grains and organic compounds in primitive extraterrestrial materials, such as meteorites, micrometeorites and interplanetary dust particles.
