I combine field, laboratory, and experimental work to investigate the evolution of mineral systems that supply the metal resources for our built environment. I am currently focused on the evolution of mineral systems enriched in iron, copper, gold, silver, molybdenum and vanadium. Our penultimate goal is to improve genetic models that explain the formation of different mineral systems, which is necessary to improve exploration strategies to ensure a sustainable supply of resources for our growing global society. We work with mining companies to ensure that our research has direct applications for the real world.
