Note to potential graduate students:
I am accepting new graduate students for 2018-2019.  I have two projects in mind.  One is combining LA-ICP-MS detrital zircon ages with LIBS analyses of the same zircon crystals to refine the DZ sediment source models.  The second is to build a LIBS database of detrital heavy minerals with the goal of quickly determining the proportions of the various heavy minerals in a sediment to use as a correlation tool.  Please contact me if you are interested!
