Hello and welcome to my website!
My name is Hamed Pourkhorsandi. I am a geologist with expertise in studying meteorites. I did my doctoral studies in Aix-Marseille Université/CEREGE in France with a focus on classification and terrestrial weathering investigation of hundreds of meteorites from hot deserts. Before that, I did a B.Sc. in geology in Payam-e Noor University, and a M.Sc. in petrology in University of Tehran.
At the moment as a Marie-Curie@ULB COFUND fellow at Laboratoire G-Time of the Université Libre de Bruxelles (Belgium), I am working on the elemental and isotopic composition of the earliest solids formed in the solar nebula using state-of-the-art analytical methods.
Besides working in man-made laboratories, I am also experienced in meteorite recovery from different hot deserts, including the Atacama, Sahara, Lut, and Antarctica.
In addition to meteoritics and cosmochemistry, I am also interested in working on new isotopic system to be used in solving geochemical mysteries…
Of course as a petrologist, I am always interested in working on terrestrial rocks and testing new analytical methods on them!
If you are conducting any study which requires geochemical analyses, I would be interested to discuss. I am open to new collaborations…
