Dr. Alicia Cruz-Uribe is the Edward Sturgis Grew Associate Professor of Petrology and Mineralogy at the University of Maine. She studied at Dartmouth College (A.B), Northern Arizona University (M.S.), The Pennsylvania State University (Ph.D), and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (Postdoc). Her research interests span the fields of solid Earth petrology, geochemistry, and geochronology, and recently she has pursued techniques more broadly within the field of plasma mass spectrometry. In particular, her current research focuses on utilizing tandem mass spectrometry and reaction cell chemistry for geochronologic and nuclear forensic applications in both single and multicollector LA-ICP-MS. She was the 2018 Young Scientist Awardee of the International Association of Geoanalysts, and is a current Distinguished Lecturer for the Association of Women Geoscientists.
