My research focuses on understanding the dynamics and formation of the deeper portions of the Earth. I perform experiments under the pressure and temperature of the Earth's interior to study microstructures in polycrystals, their mechanical behaviour, and their relation to phase transformations. I then integrate the results of my experiments into polycrystal numerical models to understand wave propagation through complex microstructures and compare the results of these models to seismic observations. This work aims at understanding the dynamics and formation of the Earth's mantle and inner core.
