About me

I am an economic geologist with interest in ore deposits of magmatic, hydrothermal and metamorphic origin. I have a two year-long work experience as exploration geologist in Northern Europe, M.Sc. in petrology and Ph.D. in economic geology. I currently work as a part-time researcher at the Division of Mineralogy and Petrology, University of Freiburg, and provide consulting services for mineral exploration (KDS GeoConsult).
