Ashlea Wainwright

 

My primary research interest lies in investigating the composition of Earth and the evolution of the mantle through-out geological time. Within this general premise, my research focuses on both terrestrial and extra-terrestrial samples.

From looking at the initial building blocks of Earth, through ancient melting events on Earth, to modern day melt genesis. This is achieved through a number of different isotopic systems, including both long-lived and short-lived radionuclides, for which the development of high precision trace element and isotopic measurements is a fundamental aspect.In my role as Assistant Lab Manger of the Isotope Geochemistry Lab in the School of Earth Sciences, I am also involved with a number of projects relating to waters, ore deposits, orogenies and biological and archaeological samples, with respect to their isotopic (as trace and geochronological) and elemental composition via both dissolution/solution methods as well as in situ laser ablation methods. I have extensive experience with (LA)MC-ICPMS, LA-Q-ICPMS and SF-ICPMS.
