Victor Garcia – PhD candidate, University of Ottawa
Brazilian Craton crustal growth
Victor studies the formation of the oldest crust in South America, rocks of the Brazilian Craton. To do that, he is using such as whole rock and trace element geochemistry and especially long- and short-lived Sm-Nd isotopes.
Victor graduated with his BSc in 2015 and with an MSc in Economic Geology in 2018 from the University of Brasilia before joining Jonathan O’Neil’s working group at uOttawa. During his BSc and MSc, Victor published the results of his mapping efforts in the Araguaia belt and his research on Nickel deposits of the Carajas IOCG system, and attended the University of Western Australia as an exchange geology student.
