Biography

Julian Menuge joined the School as a postdoctoral researcher in 1983 and has been a lecturer since 1989, becoming senior lecturer in 2005. His research interests have included the application of isotopic and other geochemical methods to solving a diverse range of geological problems, including sediment provenance, magmagenesis and Precambrian crustal evolution. He main current interest is the application of petrographic and isotope geochemical techniques to the formation of hydrothermal and magmatic ore deposits. He lectures in geochemistry, igneous petrology, ore geology and elementary mineralogy. He has taken a keen interest in developing teaching and learning within the School and in Science generally and has been Head of Teaching and Learning for the School since 2005 and Associate Dean of Science since 2007. He played a major role in setting up the Joint BSc Degree in Archaeology and Geology in 2007, the first of its kind in Ireland. He was centrally involved in setting up the Institute of Geologists of Ireland in the late 1990s and served as its first Secretary. He has been Secretary of the National Committee for Geology (2000-2004) and the Geosciences Committee (2004-2009) of the Royal Irish Academy, and is now Vice Chair of the latter. Through the Geosciences Committee he oversaw the organisation of a conference on energy research in 2007 entitled 'Where will Ireland get its energy?'. He has contributed to geological outreach in Ireland, especially through giving lectures and leading field trips for the Irish Geological Association and as a Council member of that organisation from 1984 until 1999.

Research

Research Interests

1) Origin of hydrothermal and magmatic ore deposits, with current work on the origin of Irish-type (carbonate-hosted) Zn-Pb deposits  and rare metal pegmatites

2) Development of isotopic techniques to constrain the origin of hydrothermal ore deposits. Current work on Zn, Cu and Fe isotope analysis of sphalerite and Fe sulphides aims to constrain origin of metals and isotopic fractionation during metal precipitation, leading to new geochemical exploration tools

3) Application of geological methods (field geology, petrography and geochemistry) to prehistoric archaeological problems. Current work relates to the sources of Mesolithic tools in the west of Ireland, and of megalithic tomb stones in the south of Ireland 

Future work: I am interested in hearing from potential PhD students and postdocs who have research ideas relating to items 1) and 2) above and who wish to carry out research in the National Centre for isotope Geochemistry (NCIG). Please check the NCIG web pages (http://www.ucd.ie/geology/ncig.html) for information on analytical facilities available.
