PhD candidate Mineral Deposits and Precambrian Geology

Origin, petrogenesis and architecture of the southern Superior crust in space and time: Implications for large-scale mineral endowment.

PhD student from Norway that earned my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Bedrock- and Resource Geology at the Norwegian University of Technology and Science (NTNU), in collaboration with the Norwegian Geological Survey (NGU). My M.Sc.-project introduced me to the world of geochemistry and isotopes and how we can use them to study tectonomagmatic evolution and crustal architecture. The project also gave me opportunities to join an exchange program at Texas Tech University in Texas and visit the SHRIMP and LA-ICP-MS lab at Curtin University, Perth, Australia. After a short period working as a resource geologist for a consultancy company in the mining industry in Norway, I decided to go back to academia and continue what I had started. I'm now part of the Metal Earth Craton-project, where my PhD is focused on the Southeastern Superior. Here I will study the origin, petrogenesis and architecture of the crust in space and time, and look at the implications for large-scale mineral endowment. My supervisors are David Mole, Phil Thurston, Douglas Tinkham and Jeff Marsh.
