Alison MartinCongratulations to MSc candidate Alison Martin on receiving two awards. Alison has won research grants from both the Geological Society of America (GSA) and the Mineralogical Association of Canada!

Alison is the recipient of a Graduate Student Research Grant from the GSA and a Travel/Research Grant from the Mineralogical Association of Canada. Alison is at UC Santa Barbara to further the geochronology aspect of her MSc project. She explains her current research is “on U-Th/Pb monazite petrochronology to try and constrain how these melts may be related in time”. Alison will continue her research over the summer by looking into how manifestations of melt may be genetically related.

Congratulations Alison!
