Fields of interest: 
Experimental petrology, Mantle heterogeneities, Upper mantle processes, Reaction-driven cracking, CO2 storage via in situ mineral carbonation
My research activity since the beginning of my graduate studies is based on experimental petrology coupled with thermodynamical modeling.
Until recently, my research was primarily articulated on the role of heterogeneity and magma-rock interaction in the genesis of basalts. Since I joined the Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory, I added the carbon mineralization in my research program.

Although applications are very different, the study of fluid-rock interactions has many similarities with my work on reactive transport of melt in the upper mantle. More details on my current projects can be found on my personal website.
