Management and database registration of the department’s collections of mineral, rock, ore and meteorite specimens. The collection work includes but is not limited to handling of loan requests, assistance to guest researchers and identification of mineral specimens. XRD identification of minerals and SEM-EDS analysis.
I studied geoscience specializing in petrology/ mineralogy/ geochemistry at Gothenburg University. I worked mainly with developing an In Situ method for Rb-Sr dating of Feldspars and muscovite utilizing laser ablation based ICP-MS which I later applied in order to understand pegmatite geochronology and element systematics in pegmatite minerals.
I am also interested in “columbite-group minerals”, their major element, trace element and U-Pb isotope systematics in order to understand pegmatite genesis and pegmatitic melts.
Additionally I have a great interest in new rare and unusual minerals and mineral systematics.
