My name is Dennis Höning and I am a postdoctoral Fellow of the Origins Center and based at the VU Amsterdam. I am a planetary physicist and interested in the interior and global evolution of the Earth and other terrestrial planets. I explore interactions between reservoirs such as the influence of life on global volatile cycles. To this aim, I merge parameterized models of mantle convection with lokal models of subduction zones, box models of continental growth and mantle water evolution, and conceptual models of potential consequences of a biosphere. I am always interested in interdisciplinary collaborations that push forward the understanding of these interactions.
