About

My research focuses on the geochemistry and petrology of Archaean rocks from Greenland. It aims at understanding the relations between ultramafic and mafic-andesitic rock assemblages in order to place constraints on models for the evolution of the North Atlantic craton. I'm currently working on determining the origin of enigmatic peridotite enclaves (up to 1km in size), which are found within TTG-suite orthogneisses in the Fiskefjord region.
