Graduate Studies

My graduate students work mainly on field-based projects in British Columbia and Yukon, Canada. Typically, the results of field studies are combined with geochemical and isotopic data to produce papers for publication in refereed journals.

Currently, I have three graduate students, Francesca Furlanetto, Kirsti Medig and Oscar Nielsen. All are helping to decipher the Proterozoic geology of Yukon.

If you are interested in graduate opportunities at either the Master's or PhD level, please contact me by email at
