Most Memorable Accomplishment
Founding the AIRIE Program, leader of the team that successfully developed the Re-Os chronometer in molybdenite, then arsenopyrite and other sulfides. Sharing that discovery and technology with others.
Current projects span the petroleum and mineral industry from the Arctic to Australia. This combination, and our expertise from ores to oils and versatility in working with marine and lacustrine systems gives the AIRIE Program a unique skill set to untangle fluids in the crust – fluids that lead to ore deposits, fluids associated with maturation and mobility of hydrocarbon, fluids in magmas, and fluids in sediments from the land surface to beneath the oceans.
As director and founder of the AIRIE Program, I am also a senior research scientist and professor in the Department of Geosciences at Colorado State University (CSU). The AIRIE Program is currently partnered with the CEED Centre of Excellence at the University of Oslo, where we bring a unique dimension enhancing the core mission for the Centre for Earth Evolution and Dynamics (CEED).
