Introduction

Since my master thesis in 2011 I have studied the metallogeny of economic manganese (Mn) oxyhydroxides deposits. These deposits have a strong link to supergene weathering (rocks weathered by meteoric waters) and tend to highly concentrate some metals. In September 2013 I have started a Ph.D in applied geology in order to highlight some correlations between these supergene deposits and the geodynamic of Europe (continental exhumation in geological times). That is why my Ph.D is now focusing on the mineralogy, geochemistry, petrology and geochronology of these deposits. At the same time I'm in charge of practical lessons in aforementioned fields.

Ph.D title: "Genesis of supergene deposits - Implications to the understanding of geodynamic processes in Europe" Supervisor: Prof. Dr Johan YANS.
