Brief Summary

Nick Gardiner is a Research Fellow at CET-Curtin Node under the Timescales of Mineral Systems theme. He has an undergraduate degree in geology from the University of Oxford, a MSc in geochemistry from the University of Leeds, and then returned to Oxford to complete a DPhil in isotope and metamorphic geochemistry. After a number of years working in the global commodities markets (JP Morgan, Merrill Lynch), he returned to Oxford (and academia) in 2013, and joined Curtin in 2015.

Nick’s current research focuses on using geochemical tools to constrain magmatic-metamorphic processes notably in three areas: (a) petrogenetic controls on granite-hosted mineral deposits; (b) the growth and development of Earth's early continental crust; (c) Hf isotope systematics applied to crustal evolution studies.
