<h2 class="heading hide-accessible">Summary</h2>

We study processes in the solid Earth that affect the chemical composition of the interior of our planet.

<h2 class="heading hide-accessible">Full description</h2>

<p>Our interdisciplinary research broadly falls across three themes:</p> <ul> <li>Geochemical mantle processes&nbsp;</li> <li>Fluid-rock interaction</li> <li>Rates of Geological Processes</li> </ul> <p>We have strong collaborations with the <a href="https://environment.leeds.ac.uk/earth-surface-science-institute/doc/cohen-research-group">Cohen Geochemistry</a> group (Earth Surface Science Institute), the <a href="http://environment.leeds.ac.uk/institute-applied-geoscience/doc/rock-mechanicsengineering-geology-geomechanics-petrophysics">Petrophysics</a> group in the Wolfson laboratory (Institute for Applied Geosciences) as well as links across the University with Material Sciences and Civil Engineering.</p> <p>We encourage PhD proposals that align with the research undertaken by staff in the <a href="https://environment.leeds.ac.uk/institute-geophysics-tectonics/doc/rocks-melts-fluids-1">Rocks, Melts and Fluids</a> research group.</p> <h3>Useful links and further reading:</h3> <ul> <li><a href="https://environment.leeds.ac.uk/see-research-degrees">Research degrees within the School of Earth and Environment</a></li> <li><a href="https://environment.leeds.ac.uk/institute-geophysics-tectonics/doc/rocks-melts-fluids">Rocks, Melts and Fluids</a><a href="http://environment.leeds.ac.uk/institute-geophysics-tectonics/doc/rocks-melts-fluids-1">&nbsp;group</a></li> <li><a href="https://environment.leeds.ac.uk/see-research-innovation">School of Earth and Environment, Research and Innovation</a></li> </ul> <h3><strong>Leeds Doctoral College</strong></h3> <p>Our <a href="https://www.leeds.ac.uk/info/130558/leeds_doctoral_college">Doctoral College</a> supports you throughout your postgraduate research journey.
