Postdoctoral Fellow

My research primarily focuses on the habitable environments of terrestrial planets, with a particularly emphasize on Mars. I investigate the geomorphology, mineralogy, and geochemistry of Martian habitable environments, spanning from climate-surface interactions to deep subsurface hydrothermal systems. My research spans a broad range of scales, from orbital kilometre-scale remote sensing and in-situ observations to microscopic examinations of analog rocks in the laboratory. This comprehensive approach enables me to gain a profound understanding of the diverse and interconnected aspects of dynamic habitability on Mars and other terrestrial planets.
