Geologist and mineral collector, I have also a strong interest in Architecture. During the geological sciences degree course, I was attracted by Vulcanology and Mineralogy. However, the natural and surprising architectural features shown by mineral crystal structures attracted me, favouring my decision to direct my attention toward Mineralogy. Currently I am applying my skills to the study of mineral crystal-chemistry.
