Deformation and reaction of the lower continental crust

How strong is the lower continental crust? Due to the mechanical coupling between the lithospheric layers, deciphering the deformation behaviour of lower crustal rocks is of importance to better understand the complex deformation of Earth's lithosphere as a whole. My presentation will summarise some of my recent experimental research on how fluids, triggering metamorphic reactions in plagioclase-rich rocks, influence rock strength at elevated pressure and temperature conditions prevailing at lower crust depths.

Academic career:

  • Since 04/2024: Fixed-term senior researcher at GFZ Potsdam in section 4.2 geomechanics and scientific drilling
  • 2022-2024: NERC Independent Research Fellowship at Imperial College London
  • 2019-2022: Postdoc at Ruhr Universität Bochum
  • 2017-2019: Feodor Lynen-Fellowship (Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation) at University of Oslo
  • 2014-2017: PhD at École Normale Supérieure Paris
  • 2008-2014: B.Sc. & M.Sc. at FU Berlin

 Main research interests: Experimental rock deformation, experimental petrology, fluid-rock interactions, lower continental crust
