My current research mainly focus on revealing the internal compositional textures of minerals using novel in-situ analytical techniques such as LA-ICPMS and SEM-EDS. Below are some examples of my case studies. You can also watch the videos in which I talk about my research with students, professionals and a broader audience.

Beautiful colloform texture of sphalerite in the Galmoy Zn-Pb deposit, Irish Midlands. Revealed under plain polarised light on an optical microscopy. The vies is about 1 cm in width.
