Expertise

Since October 2017, I am a PhD Researcher in the AMGC Research Group at the VUB working on the Cretaceous-Paleogene (K-Pg) mass extinction. I study the petrography and geochemistry of ejecta material from proximal and distal K-Pg sites and I compare this with impactites from the Chicxulub crater (e.g. IODP-ICDP core 364) to understand the sequence of events during and after the meteorite impact. In addition, I am working on various dinosaur projects with colleagues at Naturalis in Leiden, the Netherlands.
