Development of in-situ multiple sulfur isotope
analysis by LA-ICP-QQQ-MS to target mineral

Guillaume is a Research Associate who runs the LA-ICPMS/MS lab. He works on sulfur speciation and its geochemical and isotopic signature during the Thermochemical Sulfate Reduction process. His interests include the study of stable isotope signatures of mineral deposits sources and the water-rock interactions that form them.
