Keiko Hattori received her Ph.D. degree in geochemistry at the University of Tokyo. Since 1983, she has been a professor at the University of Ottawa, where she teaches courses on mineral deposits and geochemistry. Her ongoing and past research, much of it with nearly 50 past and present students and postdocs, includes element recycling in subduction zones and geochemical and mineralogical studies of porphyry Cu-Au, epithermal Au-Ag, Kuroko base metal, orogenic Au, and unconformity-type U deposits. Keiko is associate editor of several journals, including Economic Geology. She is a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada as well as the Mineralogical Society of America.
