Research

My PhD research is funded by the Geological Survey of Canada TGI-4 Intrusion Related Mineralization Project. The intent of my project is to characterize the structural and temporal mechanism through which a zone control the intrusion of magma in the upper crust. My Msc research was funded by the Canadian Mining Innovation Council Footprint project and the Ministère des Ressources Naturelles du Québec. I quantified the pressure, temperature and the age of the regional metamorphism of the Pontiac Subprovince. My results directly impact the interpretation of the genesis of the Canadian Malartic gold deposit. Here are my most recent contributions:
