Research Interests

Dr. Wolf's research interests focus on the development of methods for the determination of concentration and disposition of major, minor, and trace elements in meteorites. He is currently working on developing chemical methods in conjunction with elemental determination by ICPMS and chemometric techniques in order to identify volatile trace element host phases in primitive meteorites.
