Dr. Dominique Weis gave a series of invited public lectures at the prestigious Collège de France in Paris over the past several days. She discussed isotope geochemistry in a wide variety research applications, from volcanic mantle plumes, to the cleanliness of urban areas, to Indigenous archaeology. Dr. Weis was also presented with a medal from the Collège.
Kate successfully defended her dissertation, entitled “Establishing Efficacy of Honey as a Biomonitor for Metal Distribution and Lead Source Apportionment in Urban Environments,” supervised by Dominique Weis.
Congratulations on an excellent defence, Dr. Smith!

Dr. Corey Wall is the new U-Pb Facilities Manager at PCIGR. He will start on February 16th, 2021.
Dr. Wall completed his Doctorate at UBC, where he studied the tempo and duration of magmatism in open-system, mafic-ultramafic layered intrusions (e.g., Stillwater Complex, Montana). He has spent the last four years as a Post-Doctoral Fellow and an Assistant Research Geochemist at the Isotope Geology Laboratory at Boise State University, one of the world’s leading laboratories performing high-precision CA-TIMS U-Pb geochronology.
