Marion has joined the Department of Applied Geology at Curtin University in 2008 to work on ancient zircons from the Jack Hills area in Western Australia. She also started studying lunar samples, concentrating on zircon and phosphate.

Dr Grange’s research focuses on understanding the impact and magmatic history of the Early Moon, i.e. in the first billion years of its formation. She uses lunar impact breccias from the Apollo collection or delivered as meteorites. She is also involved in studies on Martian meteorites.
