    Research topic(s)

  • My research focuses on the dynamics and evolution of the deep Earth from its earliest stages to recent times, with a particular focus on the thermal evolution. This includes modelling of the thermal and chemical evolution of the core, inner core growth, mantle convection. In the recent years, I have focused more on processes related to the early deep Earth: core formation, magma ocean dynamics and evolution, solid mantle convection interacting with magma oceans. I address these issues mostly using thermodynamics and theoretical and numerical models of fluid dynamics.
