The new year is starting with a new face among our Professors. A warm welcome from the members of U of T Earth Sciences to Xu Chu, a hard-rock petrologist, who has joined the department as an Assistant Professor. His interested are in the rock records of orogenic dynamics and the geochemical processes that transport heat and materials in the lithosphere, working on a range of topics, with the aim of improving fundamental theories for petrologic thermodynamics and kinetics, and advancing modeling efforts to reveal the geologic histories documented by natural rocks.
