Personal profile

Research interests

High-Precision U-Pb Geochronology (mainly using the CA-ID-TIMS method, but getting a little into LA-ICPMS), applied to:


- Mafic rocks generally, more specifically as related to ore deposits;

- Large Igneous Provinces, particularly as related to ore deposits, environmental effects, and paleocontinental reconstructions;

- Granites, mainly as related to continental growth;

- Lower-crustal rocks, chiefly as related to formation of continental crust, ore deposit generation, and transport of heat, fluids, and magmas.


Also of interest/capability: Paleomagnetism, geochemistry (isotope and otherwise), igneous petrology
