Biographical Sketch

George Guice is a petrologist currently employed as a Peter Buck postdoctoral fellow at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History. His research principally focuses on understanding:

  1. the tectonic processes responsible for the creation and destruction of crust on Earth during the Archean and Proterozoic Eons (4000-500 million years ago);
  2. the magmatic/hydrothermal processes responsible for critical metal (e.g., the rare earth elements in whatever device you are reading this on) mineralization in the Earth’s crust; and
  3. the magmatic and metamorphic evolution of orogenic belts, such as the Appalachian orogen in eastern North America.
