Panel 1

Welcome

Rainier

Welcome to my personal research page. I am a Mineral physicist/Planetary Scientist/Glaciologist with a background in Planetary Sciences/Geology, experimental mineral physics and Geophysics.

I am the co-develloper of the SeaFreeze code that represent accurate thermodynamics of water and HP ices and liquid water up to 2300 MPa and 400K

I am currently a Research associate at the Department of Earth and Space Science at the University of Washington, Seattle USA. I am working on high pressure ice polymorphs, salts-organics-water crystalline solids and aqueous solution thermodynamical properties at conditions relevant for deep planetary oceans.
This work is done at Prof. J. M. Brown Lab at the ESS and with Dr. S. Vance at NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
I am a member of the NAI Habitability of Hydrocarbon Worlds: Titan and Beyond and Icy Worlds projects

My previous postdoc was at the Laboratoire de Glaciologie et Geophysique de l’Environement (Grenoble, France) working on the rheological properties of polycrystalline ice Ih. This study was conducted in the frame of the DREAM ANR-funded project under the supervision of Dr. Maurine Montagnat.
