Professor Jeffery Vervoort from the Washington State University is a guest researcher in the Department of Geoscience this fall semester collaborating with the AGiR team to develop methods for split-stream laser ablation isotope analysis of accessory minerals.  Funding for Professor Vervoort’s visit is provided by a grant to Niels Bohr Professor Charles E Leshe from the Aarhus University Research Foundation.  

Professor Vervoort is a radiogenic isotope geochemist and geochronologist with interest in the early Earth and how our planet has evolved through time.  Dr. Vervoort received his Ph.D. from Cornell University (USA), worked as a postgraduate researcher at the University of Arizona for several years and is currently at Washington State University where he is a full professor.

Professor Vervoort has published over 140 peer-reviewed papers.  He is a Fellow of the Geological Society of America and American Geophysical Union, and has held over 20 research grants from the US National Science Foundation.  

Professor Vervoort will be giving a department colloquium in November, as well as, a series of workshops on the radiogenic isotope geochemistry and geochronology during the Fall semester.
