General Research Interests:
Crystallography and crystal chemistry of all mineral groups; cation ordering in crystals; the general architecture of
crystal structures; spectroscopic methods in mineralogy.
Student Research Programs available.
- Structural crystallography, particularly the solution of crystal structures of minerals, with a view to developing
hierarchical schemes of structure architecture.
M.Sc. and Ph.D. projects available.
- Crystal chemistry, particularly the application of structure refinement spectroscopy and microprobe analysis to
the solution of petrogenetic problems involving ferromagnesian minerals.
M.Sc. and Ph.D projects available.
