GeoDaze is a student-run symposium organized each year by the Department of Geosciences at the University of Arizona. It gives students in the geosciences an opportunity to showcase their research and receive valuable feedback from faculty, alumni, and peers. This year’s event was held from April 11–13.
Each year, M&A sponsors the Montgomery Prize — a $2,000 cash award — for the best oral presentation at this event. This year’s winner was Isabel Fay, for her presentation, “Localized synorogenic remobilization of Cu-Co ores in the Central African Copperbelt.”
Currently in the third year of her Ph.D. program at the UA, Isabel is focusing her research efforts on sediment-hosted ore deposits — particularly, their distribution, mineralogy, and geochemistry.
