Research Interests

I am interested in extraterrestrial matter and its delivery to Earth, controlled by the convoluted dynamic evolution of the Solar System bodies and I am pursuing my PhD in meteorite studies. My research interests involve meteorite reconnaissance fieldworks, collection and classification of meteorites. Currently, I am working on identifying changes in the meteorite flux intensity and composition and on a new classification method for ordinary chondrites using XRD.
