I completed my master degree in geoscience (economic geology) at Tuebingen University (Germany) in November 2012. Afterwards, I worked as Research Assistant at the University of Alberta (Canada) on Cu-Au porphyries until August 2014. I was then employed to perform geotechnical characterisation of soil in Southern Germany. Finally, I worked as a project reviser for a civil engineering company in Stuttgart.

I began my PhD project funded by the Irish Centre for Research in Applied Geosciences (icrag-centre.org) in University College Cork in January 2016.



I am committed to research in the fields of economic geology, structural geology and geochemistry.

My research tackles the formation of copper deposits in Southern Ireland. County Cork and Waterford are the most relevant areas. A series of copper occurrences, which were mined since the Bronze Age, represent the main target of the investigation. The outcomes of the project will support scientific and industrial understanding of mineralisation processes.

The key tools that I employ for my studies are detailed fieldwork, fluid inclusion study, and stable isotope analysis.

This iCRAG funded PhD project is supervised by Dr Pat Meere and Dr Giulio Solferino.
