For me, planetary science is by far the most interesting and exciting field of science, from the thrill of having a meteorite in my hands to the tense and exhilarating moments of space launches and landings of new beyond Earth missions. Since I was a child, I was fascinated by space and the natural world, eager to understand how it worked. Studding geology I developed my interests for igneous petrology and geochemistry. Planetary science conciliates my passion for geology and my fascination for space.
My motto is high-quality data is invariable even though its interpretations may change over time.
