My research is focused on the diagenesis of carbonate rocks integrating a variety of analytical tools and methodologies. My particular focus is on:

  • dolomitization,
  • dolomite recrystallization, and
  • carbonate hosted critical mineral deposits.

My favorite analytical approaches include:

  • conventional and cathodoluminescence petrography,
  • fluid inclusion microthermometry,
  • elemental analysis,
  • isotope geochemistry (stable carbon and oxygen isotopes, carbonate clumped isotopes, strontium isotopes), and
  • Rietveld refinement of X-ray diffraction data.
