My current research seeks to understand the generation and evolution of the continental crust by using mineral archives that yield high precise crystallization ages, such as zircon. We are particularly interested in developing new ways to determine the composition of new continental crust, and we are at present using Sr and Pb isotopes in tiny mineral inclusions preserved within zircon. Similar approaches are also being developed to investigate the links between magma petrogenesis and the development of magmatic and hydrothermal ore deposits.
