Ruprecht-Karls-Universitat Heidelburg


1990 Diplom in Physics (Max-Planck-Institut für Kernphysik, Heidelberg)
1993 Dissertation in Physics (Max-Planck-Institut für Kernphysik)

Areas of Research: 

Geochemistry, mantle geodynamics, noble gas isotopes and the evolution
     of the Earth
: Origin of the Earth, core mantle differentiation, formation
     of the terrestrial atmosphere, evolution and structure of the Earth's
     mantle, interaction with the lithosphere
Environmental and paleoclimate aspects of noble gas nuclides:
     Noble gases as tracers of early atmospheric evolution, 39Ar in
     environmental studies, surface exposure dating using cosmogenic
Isotope chronology: Radiometric dating using radiogenic noble gas
      nuclides (e.g., 40Ar/39Ar), calibration of age monitor minerals and
      40K decay constants
Cosmochemistry, planetology and terrestrial planets:
     Cosmic dust in the interstellar medium and in protoplanetary disks,
     dust agglomeration, formation of small bodies in the solar system
Impacts of asteroids, evolution of planetary surfaces:
     Radiometric dating of terrestrial impact structures, impact
     metamorphosed meteorites from asteroids, Mars and the moon
Space instruments: Analyses of cosmic dust
     (CDA/Cassini, COSIMA/ROSETTA, LEOPART), in situ instrument for
     radiometric dating on planetary surfaces (ISAGE)
