Currricul@'s texts

Research interests. My research interests focus on basinal fluids and fluids linked to epithermal systems. I worked in the genesis of ore deposits and I am specially interested on the type of information that mineral textures can provide us. Techniques I am using include mapping, transmitted and reflected light microscopy, fluid inclusions microthermometry, major and trace element analyses, stable and radiogenic isotopes measurements. I am working too on surface water and groundwater environmental problems, using isotopes
