The aim of my PhD thesis is to develop a global model on crustal formation on early Earth. For this, I investigate the early evolution of Earth’s interior and surface by linking mineralogical, chemical, and thermodynamic properties. With this information, a statistical overview of crustal formation and recycling mechanisms will be created.
For my research, following topics are of particular interest:
-Varying melt compositions and the impact of partition coefficients
-different formation processes of oceanic and proto-continental crust
-crustal and lithospheric erosion and delamination.
