Thèmes de recherche

Solid State Chemistry, Ceramics, Physics and Chemistry of Minerals, Geochemistry

Her research interests have centered about relating microscopic features of structure and bonding to macroscopic thermodynamic behavior in minerals, ceramics, and other complex materials. She has made contributions to mineral thermodynamics; mantle mineralogy and high pressure phase transitions, silicate melt and glass thermodynamics, order-disorder in spinels, framework silicates and other oxides, ceramic processing, oxide superconductors, nitrides, zeolites nanomaterials and the general problem of structure-energy-property systematics. The main technical area of her laboratory is high temperature reaction calorimetry.
