Introduction
I am currently working as PhD student in Cosmochemistry at the Department for Planetary Science at the Max Planck Institute for Solar System Research in Göttingen, Germany. My major research interests are planetary genetics, the dynamic evolution of the Solar System, and volatile depletion processes on Earth and other terrestrial bodies.

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Petrography, mineralogy, chemistry, and isotopic composition of an unusual “metal-rich lithology” from the fresh fall carbonaceous chondrite breccia Aguas Zarcas.
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The CH and CB chondrites show petrographic and isotopic characteristics that sharply distinguish them from other chondrite groups (e.g., high abundance of Fe-Ni metal, strong depletion of volatile elements, zoned metal grains, young ages of individual components). On this basis, it has been proposed that CH and CB chondrites are genetically linked...
Article
Full-text available
On September 12, 2019 at 12:49:48 (UT) a bolide was observed by hundreds of eye-witnesses from the Netherlands, Ger- many, Belgium, Denmark and the UK. One day later a small meteorite stone was found by accident in Flensburg. The pres- ence of short-lived cosmogenic radionuclides with half-lives as short as 16 days proves the recent exposure of the...
Article
A coordinated study of the petrology, mineral chemistry, and bulk chemical and isotopic composition of the five ungrouped carbonaceous chondrites Coolidge, Loongana 001, Los Vientos (LoV) 051, Northwest Africa (NWA) 033, and NWA 13400 reveals that these meteorites have a similar set of properties that distinguishes them from the other carbonaceous...
Article
On April 23rd, 2019, the Aguas Zarcas meteorite fall occurred in Costa Rica. Because the meteorite was quickly recovered, it contains valuable extraterrestrial materials that have not been contaminated by terrestrial processes. Our X-ray computed tomography (XCT) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) results on various pre-rain fragments from earl...
