Professor Karin Barovich

My research interests centre on the use of isotopic variations of elements such as Hf, Nd, Sr, and Pb to understand the origin and chemical evolution of the Earth and using radiogenic isotopes to determine the ages of rocks and geological events. I am also interested in science education, especially the transition into university study.

My teaching interests include igneous geology and geochemistry.
