Alan Collins is a Professor of Geology at The University of Adelaide and is fascinated by the world and by what the rocks of the world can tell us about how the world works and what it looked like in the past. He has worked with a great set of PhD students and colleagues all […]
Donnelly Archibald is an Instructor and Lecturer at St. Francis Xavier University in Canada. He uses field studies, geochronological, isotopic and geochemical data collected from igneous rocks to answer tectonic problems. He primarily studies rocks in Madagascar and the northern Appalachians. Madagascar is a large island nation located off the southeast coast of Africa. Many […]
Jiu-Long Zhou is a postdoc in the Chemical Geodynamics group at the Institute of Geology and Geophysics, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He utilizes a range of analytical techniques to extract information from igneous rocks for reconstructing the Proterozoic tectonics of Madagascar and South China.
Catherine Wheller is at the pointy end of her PhD at The University of Melbourne, Australia (excepted completion early 2017). Her research involves using phase equilibria modelling of mineral assemblages to investigate the formation conditions of high-grade metamorphic rocks. She produced a new thermodynamic model for sapphirine and is applying this model to rocks collected […]
