My research focuses on the processes involved in the generation and evolution of arc magmas, as revealed by their mineral and melt geochemistry, and the implications of these processes on the formation of magmatic-hydrothermal ore deposits. I am currently working on the 'Fertility Fingerprints' project, funded by Quantum Pacific Exploration (QPX). This project, which will run for 2-3 years, focuses on the mineral chemistry of key phases within porphyry Cu deposits, with the aim of developing them as tools for exploration.
