Miguel Cisneros

Miguel Cisneros graduated from the University of California Los Angeles (B.S.) with a thesis focused on testing the suitability of K-Ca dating for detrital minerals. Afterwards, Miguel completed his M.S. and Ph.D. at the University of Texas at Austin having worked on chlorine partitioning between minerals and water and constraining how high-pressure subduction zone rocks from the Cycladic islands in Greece, are exhumed back up to the surface. His current research focuses on combining structural geology, microstructures, stable isotopes, and thermobarometry, to understand processes such as the evolution of metamorphic rocks and fluid sources in subduction zones.
