Research and Publications
My current research interests cover a number of projects which can be broadly classified as geospectroscopy, geobiology, biogeochemistry, and astrobiology. Much of my research is conducted in the Vibrational Spectroscopy Facility in the School of Chemistry and in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences MIT, USA.
