As a geologist I study shock and thermal metamorphism of ordinary and carbonaceous chondrites by mineral spectroscopical methods for 7 years. Currently, I am occupied as young researcher in HAS-Center of Astronomy and Geology in Budapest, Hungary.
Between 1st -7th February 2015, under the STSM-TD1308-010215-053644-53644, with title “Martian meteorite analysis for astrobiology” I visited Dr. Elias Chatzitheodoridis's laboratories at the National Technical University of Athens. I made Raman spectroscopy and back-scattered electron microscopy measurements on Martian meteorites.
Currently I study aqueous alteration of CV3 chondrites and Martian meteorites. In this study made by this STSM I examine four nakhlite samples from similar Martian source area with new instruments, to distinguish secondary minerals of terrestrial origin from Martian origin, proposing of formation circumstances of secondary minerals obtaining characterization of temperature, pH, and salinity of hydrothermal systems on Mars, to reconstruct conditions of hydrous environments.
After the STSM, the borrowed samples were examined in my home institution, which could obtain help in calibration and evaluation our instrumental background to make compatible results with those gained in Athens.
