  • My role at Bristol University At Bristol
  • I am Research Fellow in Mineral systems involved in a BHP Billiton funded investigation. It studies the links between volcanism
  • tectonics
  • and mineralisation to better understand the formation of porphyry copper deposits in Chile. As part of the Bristol PCD team
  • I am focused on bringing a mining perspective to the group and facilitating knowledge transfer between academic and industry partners. I am also working on a PCD Master by research project with Jon Blundy
  • Alison Rust and Steve Sparks. My research interests My main interest is Economic Geology
  • particularly porphyry copper deposits. My research is focused on understanding the relationship between volcanoes and porphyry copper deposits (PCD) in South America. Some of the questions that I am trying to answer are how often these deposits repeat in time and space. I use statistical analysis in order to predict the location of the next PCD and therefore
  • contribute to the exploration business.
