Professor Hollings received his BSc from Royal Holloway and Bedford New College, University of London in 1992 and his PhD from the University of Saskatchewan in 1998. After a one-year postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Saskatchewan where he worked on the characterisation of waste rock associated with uranium mines, Dr. Hollings moved to the Centre for Ore Deposit Research (CODES) at the University of Tasmania, Australia in 1999 for a two-year NSERC funded postdoctoral fellowship. At CODES Dr. Hollings participated in a multi-disciplinary research project investigating the genesis of giant copper-porphyry deposits in Chile. As a faculty member at Lakehead University since 2001, Dr. Hollings is continuing his research into the relationship between igneous petrogenesis and mineralisation with projects in Northwestern Ontario, the Philippines and S America. Hollings’ current research is focused on the development of the Midcontinent Rift in N Ontario, Archean mineral deposit formation and tectonic evolution, and global porphyry mineralisation.
