Personal profile


     Cole McCormick completed B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees at the University of Alberta (Canada). For his Ph.D. at The University of Manchester, Cole now finds himself studying diagnostic rock textures in fault-controlled dolomite bodies (e.g., cement-supported breccias, fractures, zebra textures) working with Drs. Cathy Hollis and Ernie Rutter. This research integrates conventional carbonate diagenesis techniques (e.g., fieldwork, petrography, geochemistry) with triaxial rock deformation experiments. In particular, they are interested in the P/T conditions that gave rise to these rock textures as well as the role of fluid-flow pathways, recrystallization, and self-organization.

     The first chapter of Cole's Ph.D. thesis on hyperspectral imaging was published at: and he can be contacted about any past or future works at or at
