Postdoctoral Fellow
(202) 478-8958
Olivier Gagné joins the Geophysical Laboratory from the University of Manitoba as a postdoctoral associate working with Bob Hazen. He is working on employing large data resources in mineralogy and crystallography to identify the physical and chemical parameters required to accurately determine the oxidation state of redox-active transition metals elements in sulfide and sulfosalt minerals. The aim of his project is to use the oxidation state of the constituent ions as a proxy to study the Earth's changing near-surface conditions through geological time. 
His research interests also include crystal chemistry, crystallography, and mineralogy.
