|Following a B.A. (mod) in Geology at Trinity College
Dublin, a personal Shell Scholarship allowed me to carry
out Ph.D. research at Imperial College London.
supervised by J. Wilkinson, R. Herrington (Natural History
Museum) and H. Shaw, was concerned with the chemistry of
formation waters and the origin of low temperature Pb-Zn
deposits in Cornwall, U.K.
|Following this, I held a variety
of post-doctoral positions at Kingston University, the
Natural History Museum, London and University of Leeds,
working on Pb-Zn and Ni-laterite mineralization and the
migration of sedimentary brines into crystalline basement
rocks. I was a lecturer at the University of Leeds for 18
months before I moved to the University of Alberta to take
up a position as an assistant professor.
