Alexandre Rouleau, PhD candidate, was awarded a MITACS Globalink Research Award

Alexandre Rouleau, PhD candidate in Dr. Hanika Rizo's research group, has been honoured with a MITACS Globalink Research Award, enabling him to conduct research at a renowned German laboratory for several months. This prestigious award will facilitate his investigation of rocks from the Saglek-Hebron Gneiss complex, located in northern Labrador, Canada, where some of the oldest rocks on Earth are found. During his internship at the University of Cologne, Alex will analyze the rocks he has collected from this area. With ages ranging from 2.7 to 3.9 billion years, this study promises to yield invaluable insights into the evolution of the Earth's ancient crust and early mantle.
