Chair
Petrology
Date of appointment 01.03.2017
Profile

I am both a petrologist and a geochemist. I study modern and ancient environments. My current research focus is on:

- The Archean and Paleoproterozoic Earth: the evolution of early prokaryotic life and environmental conditions on the early Earth.

- Develoment of stable isotope tracers in geomicrobiology and astrobiology (Fe, Se and multiple S isotopes)

- Archean and Paleoproterozic greenstone belt geology (Barberton Greenstone Belt, S Africa; Marowijne Greenstone Belt, Suriname)

- Origin of banded iron formations

I have also worked over many years to develop microanalytical techniques for isotopic and trace element analysis. Since my early career I have had a continued interest in the investigation of melt generation processes and crust-mantle interactions in subduction zones, especially related to Mio-Pliocene volcanism in Eastern Europe.

Project:
Life cycle of meteoritic carbon on planetary bodies with focus on Mars
02.10.2017 to
General project description 

Recent studies indicated that meteorite material, when UV irradiated has the potential to emit carbon, in the form of methane (CH4) gas. Modern analytical techniques, like NanoSIMS, allow us to measure this decay of meteoritic carbon under the influence of UV irradiation. Several analytical methods, such as cavity ring down spectroscopy (CRDS) and mass spectrometry will give us an insight in the pathways of methane production and its isotopic fingerprints. Future missions to Mars, where we know CH4 is an atmospheric componenet, will provide new data on (meteoritic) organic material which may be present. Comparing future data to our laboratory studies will give us a better understanding of the relation between carbon in meteorites and the Martian CH4 budget.
