Geofluids, material transport and element cycling
To trace the sources, sinks and transport mechanisms of elements among the major Earth reservoirs via magmas, fluids and gases, in deep- and shallow-level systems.
Timing, rates and mechanisms of Earth processes
To develop and apply isotopic tracing and dating techniques for determining the rates and understanding the mechanisms of geological processes ranging from global tectonics to surface weathering.
Mineral and gas hydrate resources
To characterize, understand the origin of and develop exploitation strategies for metallic ore deposits and gas hydrate resources, using case studies, experiments and modelling.
