Specialisms

economic geology, environmental effects of mining and ore processing, isotope mapping as tool in exploration targeting, origin of ore deposits

Summary

At the Centre for Russian and Central EurAsian Mineral Studies (CERCAMS) I work on projects related to mineral deposit studies. I am involved in consultancy projects in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Mongolia and Russia. Research areas of particular interest include: isotope mapping as tool in exploration targeting; origin of ore deposits; economic geology; environmental effects of mining and ore processing.
