Research summary

My research is currently focused on developing a novel method for in situ Rb-Sr dating on major mineral phases using laser ablation. This technique is being developed using 'Proteus' a prototype mass spectrometer designed and built by Thermo Fisher. A particular focus of my research is the refinement of a collision cell reaction ion-gas scheme tailored to minimize the isobaric interferences which currently hamper in situ Rb-Sr dating in mineral phases. My research at the University of Bristol is being conducted in a close partnership with Thermo Fisher Scientific.

The resulting method developed for in situ Rb-Sr dating will be ...
