Dr. Marshall’s research focus is solid-state Raman spectroscopy, in particular understanding the Raman spectrum of hematite, mineralogy, and astrobiology.
Ph.D., Solid-state Chemistry , Department of Chemistry, Materials and Forensic Science, University of Technology, Sydney (UTS)
B.App.Sc (Hons), Chemistry , Departments of Chemistry, Materials and Forensic Science and Geology, University of Technology, Sydney (UTS)
I teach introductory geology, mineralogy, geochemistry, and Raman spectroscopy of crystalline solids.
- Raman spectroscopy
My research program is two-fold. Firstly, I am focusing on solid-state Raman spectroscopy to better understand the Raman spectra of hematite, dolomite, and graphite. My second area of research is the development of Raman instrumentation for planetary science and astrobiology missions.
- Raman spectroscopy
- FTIR spectroscopy
- Carbonaceous materials
