Brief Summary

Kirsten completed a PhD on the geochemistry of porphyry Mo ore deposits at McGill University, Montreal, in 2008. She then moved to the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences in Potsdam for three years of postdoctoral research, which involved geochemical experiments on the remobilization of metals during the geological storage of carbon dioxide in saline reservoirs, as well as the fluid-fluid fractionation of metals in ore-forming systems with applications to porphyry Cu deposits. In 2012, she joined Curtin as a lecturer in ore deposits.

Research Interests

Kirsten’s research interests involve the transport of metals in crustal fluids, with applications to the mobility of these elements in magmatic-hydrothermal ore-forming systems such as porphyry Cu-Mo-(Au) deposits and orogenic Au deposits. She is particularly interested in the fractionation of metals between liquids and vapours and the transport of metals in vapours. Kirsten is currently investigating the geochemical behaviour of metals such as Au, Cu and U in low-density, carbonate-bearing aqueous fluids, by applying experimental data to field-based observations of fluids in ore deposits.
