        Research highlights:

- Letter in Nature! Published on September 15th, 2016, Bouvier & Boyet, Primitive Solar System materials and Earth share a common initial 142Nd abundance

-GEOMETRIC lab is open after 18 months of planning and construction and ICP-MS is funded by CFI-ORF programs!

- it's official: announcement of CRC Awards at Western and  CRC websites!

- the source crater of Martian shergottites has been found, called Mojave, and confirms the old crust formation age!

- Highlight from the Faculty of Science at Western

- Canadian Women Flying High in Space Science and Engineering, nice blog!
-  Opportunities for M.Sc. or Ph.D. students interested in isotope geochemistry and cosmochemistry research in meteorites, planetary materials, and terrestrial impact craters may be available. Contact me for further information. Any request should include a current CV, a one-page statement of interest in graduate studies in my research group, and a copy of your academic transcript(s).

 - January 2013:
“The age of the Solar System redefined by the oldest Pb–Pb age of a meteoritic inclusion” highlighted by Nature Geoscience editors as 1 of the 10 favourite papers in the web focus that celebrates the 5th anniversary of the journal

- August 2012: announcement as recipient of the Nier Prize 2013 from the Meteoritical Society!

  More information: here.

- January 2012: ranked as the most cited paper published
over the last 5 years
in Earth and Planetary Science Letters journal 
 The Lu-Hf and Sm-Nd isotopic composition of CHUR: Constraints from unequilibrated chondrites and implications for the bulk composition of terrestrial planets

- January 2012: ranked 9 amongst the most cited papers published since 2007 in Geochimica Et Cosmochimica Acta journal
 Pb-Pb dating constraints on the accretion and cooling history of chondrites

- December 2011: 2 research proposals selected this year for funding by the National Science Foundation and National Aeronautics and Space Administration!

- one amongst the oldest basalts of the Solar System dated at 4562.9 Ma suggests homogeneous distribution of 26Al within the protoplanetary disk
U-Pb and Al-Mg dating of the unique basaltic achondrite NWA 2976

- the age of the Solar System redefined by the oldest Pb-Pb age of a meteoritic inclusion
Nature Geoscience, v. 3, p. 637-641. DOI: 10.1038/NGEO941 (2010)

NWA 2364-B1 CAI Pb-Pb age is 4 568 200 000 years (+200 000/-400 000 years).

- The surface of Mars is old and so are shergottite meteorites

Earth and Planetary Science Letters, v. 280, p. 285-295 (2009)

Pb-Pb ages of shergottites are 4.1 and 4.3 Ga and suggest than younger U-Pb, Sm-Nd, Ar-Ar ages record recent impact events on the surface of Mars.

- Sm-Nd and Lu-Hf CHUR values revised using the most pristine set of chondrite meteorites.
Earth and Planetary Science Letters, v. 273, p. 48-57 (2008)

147Sm/144Nd = 0.1960 ± 0.0004 and 143Nd/144Nd = 0.512630 ± 0.000011
176Lu/177Hf = 0.0336 ± 0.0001 and 176Hf/177Hf = 0.282785 ± 0.000011
