Dr Tim Lichtenberg
Junior Research Fellow
Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Physics
I work as a postdoctoral fellow in the department of Atmospheric, Oceanic and Planetary Physics at the University of Oxford. I study the growth and evolution of rocky planets in order to embed the birth and life cycle of worlds un/like the Earth in an integrated picture.
I mostly employ theoretical and numerical techniques to quantify and predict major physical and chemical controls of planetary accretion and evolution. With my research I aim to deepen our understanding of the planetary context of the origins of life, in the solar system and elsewhere.
