• Associate Professor Philipp Heck

Associate Professor Philipp Heck’s research interests include meteorites and their components (in particular presolar grains and CAIs), micrometeorites, and cosmic dust. Heck and his collaborators study these samples with the following techniques: noble gas mass spectrometry, atom-probe tomography, SIMS, NanoSIMS, SEM, FIB-SEM, Raman spectroscopy, Q-LA-ICPMS, and uCT. Heck currently teaches the accretion of extraterrestrial matter to Earth, research and reading. Heck curates the meteorite, rock and mineral collection at the Field Museum of Natural History
