Kristina Sukhanova
Kristina Sukhanova graduated with a specialist (equivalent master) degree cum laude (2015) in mineralogy and geochemistry from Mining University (St.-Petersburg, Russia). In 2018 completed a scientific research project focused on typomorphyc features of tourmaline and fluorite from Russian Far East tin deposits and finished an aspirantura study program in Earth Sciences (Mineralogy, Crystallography) at St.-Petersburg Mining University. Now she is a Junior Research Scientist in the Institute of Precambrian Geology and Geochronology Russian Academy of Sciences. Kristina is studying REE mobility in silicate minerals from different types of ordinary chondrites. She uses the SIMS technique to measure concentrations of REE in olivine and pyroxene and to determine the U-Pb age of Ca-phosphate minerals. In 2019 she completed an international training workshop on "Modern Analytical Geochemistry and its Application" and took almost one year in 2020 for an internship in the SIMS lab of the Institute of Geology and Geophysics Chinese Academy of Sciences (Beijing, China).
