Jonathan Spence

Jonathan joined the Environmental Economic Geology Laboratory in May 2022, following the completion of his H.B.Sc. at McMaster University in Integrated Sciences. His past research was focused on computational geochemistry and the use of machine learning in remote sensing applications. His Ph.D. is focused on optimizing enhanced rock weathering as a carbon capture technique, and developing remote sensing techniques to validate and quantify enhanced rock weathering progress. Additionally, Jonathan is researching the effects of enhanced rock weathering on soil health and productivity. Finally, he will be analyzing the political and economic aspects of enhanced rock weathering through policy analysis, life-cycle analysis, and techno-economic analysis.
