Carsten Münker is professor for geochemistry and cosmochemistry at University of Cologne, Germany, since 2009. He has done his PhD research in the 1990s at Göttingen University and MPI Mainz and has carried out his postdoctoral research at the universities of Tasmania (Australia) and Münster (Germany), followed by a professorship for geochemistry at Bonn University. Carsten’s research focuses on the application of novel isotope and trace element tools to problems in geochemistry and cosmochemistry, with an emphasis on high temperature processes. In 2015, he has been awarded an ERC Advanced Grant to investigate the isotope vestige of meteorites and Earth’s oldest rocks. He also co-ordinates a German key research program on early earth habitability.
