We focus on fundamental research in stable isotope geochemistry to develop and improve biomarkers and environmental proxies related to the Archean Earth, and we investigate early Earth and modern hydrothermal settings as analogues of Mars for future planetary missions.

We study melt inclusions and a range of volcanic products to understand magmatic processes, we explore crater lakes and the effects of harmful volcanic emissions, and we investigate the origin of mineral resources. Finally, we are also active in the development of new analytical techniques, and have a variety of lab facilities available including Laser Ablation ICP-MS.

Currently, our group consists of two academic staff members, three post-doctoral researchers and four PhD students.
