The origin of the Solar System and formation of planets such as Earth are among the most fascinating, outstanding scientific problems. From theoretical models to natural observations, it is possible to infer a general way of how the Solar System evolved from the gravitational collapse of the molecular cloud to accretion and differentiation of planetary-sized bodies. My research attempts to place additional constraints on the source, distribution, and evolution of chemical variability in the early Solar System and its planetary bodies.
