Michael Schindler

Full Professor

Department of Earth Sciences, University of Manitoba


PhD, Frankfurt a.M (1997), Mineralogy


I am interested in all kinds of nano-scale processes in the environment such as the transport of metals and metal(loid)s as nanoparticles and colloids, their retention by mineral surface coatings and their release during dissolution of minerals.
I specifically study:
1. Mineralogical processes in confined pore spaces of mineral surface coatings and organic matter;
2. Dissolution mechanisms of minerals
3. Transport of metals and metal(loids) as nanoparticles and colloids in surficial soils as well as ore deposits
4. Crystallization processes involving nanoparticles
5. Occurrence of nano-size inclusions in minerals and their release during dissolution of their hosts


Recently taught courses include Geochemistry and Hydrogeology
