Daniel Astudillo has joined the Planetary Geochemistry group at UF as an MSc student! Daniel comes from Santiago, Chile, where he did his BSc at the Universidad de Chile. He studied the 2015 eruption of the Calbuco volcano in Chile using trace elements, volatiles, and melt inclusions. At UF, he's becoming a bit more of a 'lunatic', studying crustal rocks collected by Apollo 17 to better understand the inter-sample relationships between those rocks and what they can tell us about the age of the lunar crust.
