Research overview

My research focuses on studying the speciation of nitrogen and fluorine in synthetic silicate melts and the incorporation of fluorine in common mantle minerals (e.g., olivine and pyroxene). Our aim is to understand which conditions control the chemical species in which fluorine and nitrogen occur in mantle conditions by synthesizing silicate melts and phases and studying them with MAS-NMR, with implications for the evolution of primitive atmospheres in Earth-like planets.
