Diddordebau ymchwil

My research is focused around the behaviour of platinum-group elements in high temperature-pressure magmatic systems, such as the Bushveld complex in South Africa. By studying platinum-group element mineralisation, trends and distribution, within the troctolite marker of the Northern Limb of the Bushveld complex,

I hope to deduce the formation conditions of the troctolite marker, possible platinum-group element enrichment mechanisms and whether the troctolite marker is analogue to lithologies found elsewhere in the Bushveld complex. The troctolite marker has been poorly studied and an in-depth study like this is the first to be undertaken on the unit.
