My interests mainly relate to the study of metallic deposits, their formation, composition, and spatial distribution within the area of study. During the course of my Masters in Geological Engineering I focused primarily on estimation and simulation methods in a mining setting to infer the locations and content of ore metals, as well as other metals that would prove to be damaging to the quality of the material. I am currently working on seafloor metallic deposits, mainly oxyhydroxides found in the Mid- Atlantic Ridge (MAR) by focusing on their mineralogical and geochemical composition so that I may create/adapt known methods of geospatial analysis and better understand the distribution of the metals in the deposits, both within and among each other.
