David Rubie started his scientific career studying Alpine metamorphic sequences but in a well-considered downward shift in his field area he concluded that certain phenomena he observed must also have important implications for the deeper Earth’s mantle. In order to test and advance these ideas he crossed into the field of high-pressure experimental science where he has remained a leading force for the past 20 years. To further his investigations he built the first European multi-anvil laboratory at the Bayerisches Geoinstitut which enabled him to diversify his interests into most aspects of mantle physics and chemistry such as reaction kinetics,...
