Yanhao Lin is a postdoctoral associate at the Geophysical Laboratory, joining from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. He is working with Michael Walter on understanding high P-T phase relation and multiphase stable isotope partitioning in the Fe-O-H system under high P-T conditions relevant to the deep mantle. His research interests also include evolution of magma and volatiles in the planetary settings, with an emphasis on the differentiation of the lunar magma ocean, water evolution in the early Moon, and volatiles partitioning under extreme conditions.
