Research Interests

Dr. Hasiuk is a sedimentary geologist/geochemist who is keenly interested in answering important academic and industry questions related to the Earth’s sedimentary shell. His specialty is limestone sedimentology, stratigraphy, diagenesis, petrography, and petrophysics, but he can appreciate any sedimentary rock he is lucky enough to be holding.

Research areas he is actively pursuing include:

  • Carbonate paleothermometry (e.g. Mg/Ca, d18O, and Clumped Isotopes)
  • CO3DB–The Database of Carbonate Geochemistry
  • Diagenesis and geochemistry of fine-grained sedimentary rocks
  • Analytical models of porous media
  • High-resolution geochemical techniques in carbonates
  • Industrial uses and production of carbonates

Teaching

Franek is committed to teaching the fundamental skills of rock description and interpretation.
