Leonardo Feltrin, Mineral Exploration Research Centre
Dr. Feltrin has recently joined HES at Laurentian University (January 2018) as Associate Professor of Earth Systems Modelling. His research considers the use of computational geoscience, AI and modern data analytics to increase the chance of discovery of ore deposits and improve the understanding of factors controlling mineral resources location in the Earth’s crust. Applied research focuses on GIS-based mineral prospectivity mapping, data analytics, robotics and Earth systems 3D reconstructions and simulations. Starting in Winter 2018, he will be teaching the course GEOL 3056 titled Computer Applications in the Earth Sciences.
