Dominique Weis Awarded 3rd Term as Canada Research Chair

December 2016


PCIGR Director Dominique Weis was recently appointed to a 3rd term as Canada Research Chair (Tier I) in the Geochemistry of the Earth’s Mantle at the University of British Columbia.

The reviews of her second renewal application were outstanding:

“Dominique Weis has throughout her career expanded her research capabilities and activities by increasing the breadth of her skills and interests in a variety of ways to an extent in which she has few rivals.”

“Dr. Weis is without doubt one of the world’s best isotope analysts and she is a world leader in isotope geochemistry.”

Dominique has held this prestigious position since 2002, when she moved to Canada from Belgium.  During the past 14 years, her research has helped shape our understanding of the world’s large igneous provinces, mantle plumes, and volcanic arcs.  Over the next 7 years, Dominique will continue her innovative applications of isotopic and tracer geochemistry to quantify and constrain the geochemical evolution of our planet, from the deep mantle to the environment.
