    Personal information

    I am Edgar Steenstra, a Carnegie Fellow (2019-2021) at the Geophysical Laboratory, Carnegie Institution for Science, Washington D.C. I obtained my PhD in March 2019 (Cum Laude). I currently focus on experimental petrology and its application on the formation and early evolution planetary bodies. I use a range of equipment (piston cylinder, gas mixing furnace, multi-anvil, synchrotron; elecron microprobe, Raman, spectroscopy, LA-ICP-MS and diamond anvil cell) to study geochemical processes at high pressure and temperature. Using this data, I study the formation and evolution of planetary bodies in the inner solar system.
