Field of study
My PhD research is focused on the petrographic & geochemical characterization of extraterrestrial materials including Antarctic and urban (micro)meteorites. This will allow us to obtain a better understanding on the origin and early evolution of the Solar System. Furthermore, by comparing the contemporary and ancient fluxes of extraterrestrial material to Earth, we are able to specify the occurrence of certain events in the local asteroid belt during geological time.
During my MSc. project, I investigated the petrographic & geochemical properties of volcanic rocks in the Crommyonia region (Corinth, Greece) to determine their petrogenetic evolution and their role within the South Aegean Active Volcanic Arc.
