Welcome to the Isotope Cosmochemistry Laboratory directed by Prof. Kun Wang in the Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis.
Our lab works on a variety of samples including meteorites, lunar rocks and rocks on the Earth. Our research interests focus on:
- Origin of the Earth and of the Solar System
- Planetary differentiation: core-mantle segregation and crust formation
- Transition metal isotope geochemistry
- Analytical development and application of high precision isotopic measurements using Multi Collector Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry (MC-ICP-MS)
