Research Interests:

Search for precompaction cosmic ray irradiation records in chondrules

Trapped Noble gases in different mineral separates from chondrules



I am a Post Doctoral research associate at the Noble gas lab, Washington university in St. Louis. Our group is also part of the McDonnell center for space sciences.

Research Theme

Meteorites are record of nebular and planetary processes. My present research is based on chondrites. These type of meteorites carry records of first few million years of our solar system evolution. The measurement of noble gases (He, Ne, Ar, Kr and Xe) in chondrites is among the many ways to find out how our solar system evolved from an infant star to the family of planets. For this quest, I use noble gas mass sepctrometers to measure the composition and amount of noble gases in tiny grains separated from chondrites.
