My main interests are the various processes occurring in and on terrestrial planets, relevant to their formation and evolution. Currently, I am a Ph.D. student at the MPI for Solar System Research, working at the Planetary Science department. Here, I am investigating sulfidation processes on the surface of Mercury by performing high-temperature laboratory experiments. The results of these experiments will be used to interpret observations by the ESA BepiColombo spacecraft, which will arrive at Mercury in December 2025.
