Corey Wall is the Facilities Manager and U-Pb geochronologist for the Pacific Centre for Isotopic and Geochemical Research, at the Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of British Columbia. He is interested in determining the age of rocks using minerals that can be extracted from them. He aims to extract minerals such as zircon and determine the age of the rock by precisely measuring the elements Uranium and Pb on mass spectrometers.
