Postdoctoral Research Fellow , Geological Survey of Canada
Dr. Gadd is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Geological Survey of Canada that specializes in the geochemistry of sediment-hosted base metal deposits. His research applies bulk- and micro-analytical geochemical (e.g., LA-ICP-MS) techniques to these mineral deposits to determine their geochemical evolution and to build genetic models. He is currently working on shale-hosted Ni-Zn-Mo-Re-PGE mineralization in north Yukon. Dr. Gadd received his BSc from Tennessee Technological University and his MSc and PhD from Queen’s University. He is also an adjunct professor at Queen’s University, where he co-supervises graduate theses related to the geochemistry of base metal deposits.
