Funktion und Aufgaben:

Research associate in Geochemistry/Geophysics.
FTIR Lab manager (Vertex 80v coupled with Hyperion 2000 microscope).

Wissenschaftliche Interessen:

My research interests involve the application of experimental techniques and methods for probing the structural and electronic properties of geomaterials under varying pressure and temperature conditions. These include:

  • Heated diamond anvil cell for generating extremely high pressure and temperature environments
  • Infrared (in-house and synchrotron-based) and Raman spectroscopy for monitoring vibrational properties at extreme conditions
  • X-ray diffraction for full structural information (Rietveld refinements)
  • Near-infrared and UV-VIS spectroscopy for electronic properties
