    Research Interests

    Through the studies of geoloy and environmental science, I am interested in the compositional extent of truly metamorphic minerals including the total compositional range (in nature) of rock-forming metamorphic minerals. I am also interested in emerging technologies for identifying and analyzing minerals. I am currently developing the technology and methodology for applying Raman Spectroscopy to routine mineral identification. I also have interests in the science of gem materials and gem deposits.
