Personal profile


Chris received his PhD from the Memorial University of Newfoundland where he worked on laser ablation ICMPS method development of a wide range of accessory minerals and their application to granitic magmatism. Since that time he has continued to focus on the use of a wide range of accessory minerals that provide important geologic constraints from U-Pb geochronology, tracer isotopic systematics (Sm-Nd, Lu-Hf, Rb-Sr), and trace element contents.  He has applied these techniques to understand the origin and evolution of the oldest Archean complexes, including southern West Greenland, the Acasta Gneiss complex, the Pilbara Craton, as well as Eoarchean rocks in northeast Labrador.

He is currently working on the Yilgarn 2020 initiative, with a focus on the crustal evolution of the Yilgarn Craton, as well as the application of accessory minerals (e.g., zircon and apatite) as fertility indicators.
