Rizo is available to discuss the formation of the solar system, planetary formation, the age of our Sun, the birth of the Earth, and the formation of our Moon.

Leading a dedicated research group, Rizo’s work addresses fundamental questions in the planetary sciences around topics such as the formation and evolution of planets, the timing and process of Earth’s differentiation into a metallic core and a silicate rocky mantle, and the stabilization of continents along with the emergence of life. To accomplish these objectives, Rizo’s team has pioneered mass spectrometry procedures. These techniques enable the identification of isotopic variations resulting from extinct radioactivities with increasing precision, offering valuable insights into planetary processes and early Earth’s geological history.
