Congratulations to MSc student, Mark Ahenda on receiving first place for best student poster at the GAC-MAC 2017 conference. Mark received the Gold award of the Jerome H. Remick Poster Awards from the Geological Association of Canada (GAC).

The poster was entitled "Early Cenozoic evolution of the Gurla Mandhata core complex, NW Nepal Himalaya." Mark's research focuses on using field mapping, rare earth isotope geochemistry, and geochronology to characterize a metamorphic core complex in the hinterland of the Himalaya in terms of its structural position in the Himalayan system and its evolution through time.

Congratulations Mark!
