I am a postdoctoral Fellow of the Origins Center and based at the VU Amsterdam. As a planetary physicist, I am interested in the interior and global evolution of the Earth and other terrestrial planets. I explore interactions between reservoirs such as the influence of life on global volatile cycles. To this aim, I merge parameterized models of mantle convection with lokal models of subduction zones, box models of continental growth, of the global water or carbon cycle, and conceptual models of potential consequences of a biosphere. I am interested in interdisciplinary collaborations that push forward the understanding of these interactions.
