Spectroscopy Magazine is pleased to announce the addition of John Cottle to its editorial advisory board.

Cottle is a professor of Earth Science at the University of California Santa Barbara. He received both his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in geology from the University of Otago in New Zealand. He earned his dPhil doctorate in earth science from The University of Oxford in the United Kingdom. His postdoctoral research was done at the British Geological Survey in Nottingham, in the United Kingdom.

Cottle’s research interests are in the field of continental tectonics and focus on combining structural analysis, geothermobarometry, and igneous and metamorphic petrology with high resolution U(-Th)-Pb isotope geochronology to identify and constrain the temporal and spatial scale of processes that serve to modify and/or produce new continental crust. Cottle is a leader in the development of novel laser-ablation inductively coupled plasma–mass spectrometry (LA-ICP-MS) measurements and their application to tectonic questions.

The 2018 Emerging Leader in Atomic Spectroscopy award was presented to Cottle by Spectroscopy magazine at the 2018 Winter Conference on Plasma Spectrochemistry in January.
