I'm an experimental petrologist.

Until now, my primary research interest has been in the understanding of mantle melting and basalt genesis processes. This part of research is articulated on the role of mantle heterogeneities and magma-rock interactions in the genesis of basalt. I discuss this topic via an experimental approach coupled to thermodynamical modeling.

Since I joined the LDEO, I also work on the experimental development of the reactive cracking process. We want to find a way to increase the natural process that consists in the conversion of CO2 gas to stable solid carbonate minerals in peridotite and so provide new sites for the storage of the CO2
