Aaron J. Cavosie

Senior research fellow, Curtin University

I am a geologist, geochemist and planetary scientist, and I love extreme geology.

My professional interests include planetary science, impact craters, meteorites, isotope geochemistry, and petrology.

Shocked minerals record the most extreme deformation found in nature.

The study of shocked minerals, from erosion of impact craters, blends a wild collision of cross-disciplinary fields, including planetary science, sedimentology, accessory mineral geochemistry, crystallography, microanalysis, mineralogy, impact cratering, igneous petrology, shock metamorphism, geomorphology, astrobiology, early Earth, the origin of life, and more...wow!
