Dr. Alex Gysi has been attracting PhD students and post-doctoral fellows to NMT in order to form an Ore Deposits and Critical Minerals Research Group. The group will utilize the newly established Ore Deposits & Critical Minerals Research Laboratory at the New Mexico Bureau of Geology & Mineral Resources to conduct research in experimental and computational hydrothermal geochemisty. Several more positions are yet to be filled.
Much of this research is focused on critical minerals, which are essential to our modern economy.
