Post-doctoral Fellow
Fu

Originally from Germany, I finished my doctorate at the Ludwig Maximilians University in Munich in 2016. I am interested in how magnetic fields evolve with time, especially in the early solar system during planet formation. So far, my research is focused on the fundamentals of remanence acquisition and can be broadly divided into three main themes. (1) the magnetic properties of materials associated with meteorites, (2) the effect of high pressure on magnetic properties of minerals and (3) the rock magnetism of ultra-fine particles. By understanding these fundamental recording processes, we will be able to have a more robust interpretation of the magnetic signals that are retained in meteorites. At Harvard, I will be able to combine my interests and work on the fascinating and complicated paleomagnetic record of Mars.
