My Research ....

... spans a wide range of interests in planetary mineralogy, going from the supercritical state that dominated the early stages of the condensation of the protolunar disk all the way to the deep interior of the Earth and super-Earths, passing through planetary surfaces and mineral identification based on vibrational spectroscopy. My preferred tools are computational, as density-functional theory, lattice dynamics, and molecular-dynamics.
