Research Profile

Giulio Solferino

Biography

Giulio Solferino is a igneous petrologist and geochemist in the School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences at University College Cork.
 
Giulio completed the 5-years Geology programme by "Universita' degli Studi di Milano" (Italy) in 2003 and started a PhD study by the "ETH of Zurich" (Switzerland) in 2004, which he successfully defended in April 2008.  From 2010 to 2012 Giulio did postdoctoral research at "St. Francis Xavier University" in Nova Scotia (Canada). The project included several experiments performed by the APS synchrotron facility of Argonne National Laboratories (IL, USA). He was later appointed as assistant professor for a 1-year term by Mount Royal University in Calgary (Canada).

Giulio research focuses on reproducing the magmatic and hydrothermal processes occurring in the interior of the Earth via analogue modelling. To achieve this goal, Giulio uses high pressure and temperature apparatuses, and state-of-the-art in-situ analytical techniques. His current projects deal with reproducing the conditions of formation of pallasite meteorites on one side, and with the attempt to enlighten the synthesis of short- and long-chain hydrocarbons during low-temperature hydrothermal alteration of peridotite rock on the other. Giulio frequently uses experimental, analytical, and numerical modeling facilities unavailable by his principal institution via international collaborations and external research grants throughout Europe and North America. Giulio's expertise crosses between multiple aspects of the geosciences: petrology, geochemistry, ore formation, and mineralogy.

Giulio has taught very important courses closely connected with his expertise, such as Igneous Petrology and Metamorphic Petrology, and a specific Geoscience Research module while in Calgary. He is now involved in the teaching and coordination of several undergraduate modules including second year Igneous and Metamorphic Petrology, third year Geohazards, and Crustal Evolution of NW Britain, and fourth year Advanced Igneous Processes, and Economic Geology. A key aspect of Giulio's teaching style and methods is to include elements from his active research projects and from internationally recognized scientific journals and conferences into undergraduate and post-graduate courses.

Giulio is strongly motivated to increase the importance of the public outreach of scientific disciplines. He has been involved in TV-broadcasted lectures, interactive public presentations, delivering lectures in continuing education programmes, and he is the administrator of an open-access webpage, which he uses to facilitate the understanding of the geosciences to the widest possible audience, providing practical explanations of key concepts and natural phenomena.

Research Interests

My scientific investigation aims to define magmatic and hydrothermal processes active in the interior of the Earth and Earth-like planets. I use analogue modeling as a principal tool. This implies dealing with high pressure and temperature experimentation and a variety of state-of-the-art analytical techniques, but also to recover and characterize key natural samples (e.g., pallasite meteorites).
The nature of my studies led me to adopt a highly interdisciplinary approach in and outside the geosciences including the fields of magmatic petrology, geochemistry, ore formation study, but also applied and optical physics, physics of the fluid state, physics of the solid state (crystalline and non-crystalline), inorganic and organic synthesis chemistry, and astronomy.

The key tools that I employ for my research are solid state presses, hydrothermal vessels, controlled atmosphere furnaces, Raman spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, X-Ray absorption spectroscopy, optical microscopy, and digital image analyses. Moreover, I model the formation of various types of rocks via finite difference numerical simulation.

The broad topics of my research includes:

1. Magma mobility in the interior of the Earth;
2. Formation of magmatic cumulates;
3. Genesis of pallasite meteorites;
4. Formation of the Earth's core;
5. Definition of the molecular arrangement of water-bearing silicate glass and melt;
6. Oxidation and solubility of base metal oxides in supercritical water;
7. Synthesis of hydrocarbons by low-temperature alteration of peridotite rocks;
8. Bubble nucleation, growth, and coalescence in explosive magmas (rhyolite-dacite).

The principal research outcomes of my previous and current research are:
- The redefinition (i.e., correction) of the permeability-porosity equation for the asthenosphere (i.e., how fast does the melt produced in the mantle travels toward the surface of the Earth), and determination of settling times of olivine in magma chambers (employed to model the formation of major ore deposits) via analogue modeling (as opposed to mathematical models) for the first time.
- Acquisition of the first ever data of the molecular structure of water-bearing silicate melt achieved by an unprecedented and innovative type of in-situ synchrotron experimentation, which is to date the first step towards the definition of the physical state of silicate melt containing water.
- Determination of the grain growth rate of olivine in a metal-sulfide matrix. The major outcome of this investigation is the observation that the growth rate is as fast or faster than in silicate melt, which goes against expectation and requires a rethinking of growing processes of silicate phases in the geosciences and material sciences in general.
- Determination of the redox state and actual pressure in Hydrothermal Diamond Anvil Cell experiments, which led to the publication of two benchmark articles aimed at the general improvement of this type of hydrothermal vessel, which is used in the geosciences, biology, chemistry, and physics research.

The aforementioned goals were achieved by securing a number of grants, building a network of international collaborators, and through relevant mentoring activity of undergraduate candidates.
I welcome the participation of undergraduate students to experimentation and outreach relative to my research, and I value the collaboration of postgraduates. For this reason, I make of research-led teaching a key aspect of my teaching philosophy and strategy.

Teaching Activities

Teaching Interests


My current and most-recent past teaching of both lecture and laboratory classes at the level of 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th year undergraduate, complete my teaching/demonstrating experience as a postgraduate student and as postdoctoral fellow, which hinged on instructing master and phd level students.

Throughout my lecturing career I developed several new types of teaching aids and written materials, including interactive online exercises, effective assessment methods, one new course, and participated to the innovation of the Earth Science programme curriculum at Mount Royal University. Together with Dr. Jennifer Scott we organized, coordinated, and established the direct reading program of Earth Sciences (an alternative to the non-available honor thesis) at Mount Royal University, which is to date the only existing research program for undergraduates there. I am currently proposing the introduction of a new module, Geochemistry, in the UCC Geology program.

I am very motivated to prepare student scholarship proposals on themes among magma behavior and properties, hydrothermalization, metal dissolution in high temperature fluids and, therefore, I am particularly keen to employ research-led teaching as a lecturing method.

research method focused on Geosciences

The main purpose of education is to increase knowledge and understanding, for both the student and the instructor. To facilitate learning, the focus should be on four main areas. First, independent thinking must be encouraged, as it is essential to the development of each student’s ability to think critically and solve problems, both in school and in the professional career. Second, group work is important in that it allows students to share ideas, validate them with others, and work as a team to enhance their social and mental development, and understanding a group dynamics (sharing of work-load, reliability). Group work is also an important training for several professions involved in geosciences, where team-work is prevalent, within respect to independent assignments. Third, students should be guided by their instructors towards the correct conclusions without always providing the answers directly. An elegant manner to achieve this result is to include a term-project, especially in 3rd, 4th year undergraduate classes and master courses. Finally, there need to be application of learned skills and knowledge to new situations; this is the ultimate goal of any educational experience. A potential additional aim, which is emerging more and more prominently, due to wide availability of information from the web, is to transmit to the students the value of intellectual property and the importance of avoid plagiarism for both ethical and professional reasons.
