Connor Turvey is a Research Associate in geochemistry and environmental mineralogy whose interest is in reducing our greenhouse gas emissions through carbon sequestration and mineralization.
In Connor’s PhD at Monash University he traced and quantified carbon sequestration at the derelict Woodsreef Chrysotile Mine in New South Wales, Australia, learning to understand the different minerals that would trap carbon under different circumstances.
As a postdoctoral research fellow Connor worked at the CarbMin Lab at the University of British Columbia to quantify the carbon sequestration potential of a wide variety of ultramafic mine wastes to determine the best sites for new carbon sequestration projects.
Connor’s analytical expertise includes quantitative X-ray diffraction, thermogravimetric analysis, stable isotopes and microCT. He is always interested in new collaborations and can be reached below at the following addresses.
