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.

This project, 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.
