“I zap space rocks with lasers! I analyse the chemical composition of extraterrestrial materials to understand the history and evolution of our Solar System. A large part of my research focuses on age-dating meteorites to learn about the physical and thermal history of their parent asteroids. I studied chemistry as an undergraduate, and then did a PhD in physical chemistry. The work I’m doing now allows me to use experimental techniques similar to those I learnt during my PhD, but apply them to different types of samples. Our research group includes people with backgrounds in chemistry, physics and geology, and we need all that knowledge and all those skills to develop experimental techniques and understand the samples and the data we obtain from them. In this picture I’m using a tennis ball and football as the Moon and Earth to explain a lunar eclipse on TV!"⁠
