RESEARCH INTERESTS

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.
