Frédéric Moynier is Assistant Professor at Washington University in St. Louis, USA

Frédéric is originally from Provence, France. Frédéric has a bachelor’s and a PhD degree from the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon. After graduation in 2006, he did a post-doc at the University of California, Davis before becoming Assistant Professor at Washington University in St Louis. Frédéric’s research deals with understanding the chronology of the early solar system, the early differentiation of the Earth, the origin of the volatile elements in terrestrial planets, non mass-dependent isotopic fractionation mechanisms and the nucleosynthesis and the stellar environments at the birth of our solar system. To reach these goals, Frédéric uses isotopic geochemistry tools such as short-lived radioactive nuclides and heavy stable isotopes.
