Ph.D. Meteorites, 2019, The University of Lille

Primitive chondrites are mainly composed of fine-grained materials. These grains exhibit a strong heterogeneity leading up to difficulties for analyzing this material and limiting our understanding of processes occurring in the early solar system. By the means of a new data processing methodology, my research try to better constrain the formation of the fine-grained material (matrix, fine-grained rims, CAIs) in order to improve our understanding of the origin and the accretion of the dust in the early solar system.
