My main interests and long-term research activities are related to the development of ophiolite construction and geochemical geochemical signatures of their crustal components, as well as the microbial colonization and interaction with the volcanic rocks. The crucial questions related to these research activities are: In which tectonic environments are ophiolites (of any age) formed; how far back in time can we positively identify a magmatic sequence (e.g. greenstone belts) as an ophiolite, and hence the presence of plate-tectonic activity; how far back in time can be identify bio-interaction with submarine volcanic rocks, and how extensive is it? In order to get answers to these questions some of the most well-preserved Phanerozic and Precambrian ophiolites and Archean greenstone belts world-wide have been targeted and investigated.
