MSc Geological Sciences

EOSM 305

Current research for my M.Sc. thesis:

  • Investigating the petrochemistry of Fe-Ti oxides from Alaskan-type ultramafic-mafic intrusions in British Columbia and the Skaergaard layered intrusion in East Greenland
  • Utilizing the geochemistry of magnetite to compare the formation processes between closed- and open-system mafic layered intrusions
  • Evaluating the role magnetite crystallization plays in magmatic processes (e.g., fractional crystallization, magmatic differentiation, magma mixing, sulfide liquid immiscibility)
