Fields of research

Trevor's research interests include igneous and metamorphic petrology, particularly high pressure experimental studies on natural and synthetic rock systems. Trevor is presently working on trace element partitioning at high pressure with particular emphasis on ratios and fluid/melt and fluid/mineral partitioning. Related experimental studies on the nature of metasomatic melts and the importance of trace element-rich accessory minerals in the Earth's mantle are in progress.
