Courses I have taught in the past include Origin of Ore Deposits, Mineralogy, Stable Isotope Geochemistry, Mass Spectrometry, Field Camp, Experimental Mineralogy, Environmental Geology, Metamorphic Petrology, Fluid Inclusions, Ore Deposits Field Trip, Ore Deposits Seminar, and Graduate Seminar.
Courses I teach on a regular basis are:
Geology 211: Introduction to Mineralogy
Introduction to crystal structures, crystal chemistry, optical mineralogy, and mineral occurrence. The laboratory teaches mineral identification of major rock-forming and ore minerals based on physical and optical properties.
Geology 462: Mineral Deposits
Geologic and geochemical characteristics of metallic mineral deposits; theories of origin and classification.
Geochemistry 565: Stable Isotope Geochemistry
Principles of stable isotope geochemistry with applications to geologic systems.
