Roberto Perez Xavier is Professor (MS6) of Economic Geology in the Geology and Natural Resources Department of the Institute of Geosciences, University of Campinas (IG/UNICAMP), southeast Brazil. His B.Sc. in Geology was awarded in 1981 by the University of São Paulo (USP, São Paulo, Brazil), where he also received in 1987 a M.Sc. degree in Mineralogy and Petrology, with the dissertation ?Fluid inclusion studies in the Fazenda Brasileiro gold mine, Rio Itapicuru Greenstone Belt, Bahia?. His Ph.D. thesis in Geology/Metallogeny entitled ?The role of microstructural and fluid processes in the genesis of gold-bearing shear zones: Fazenda Maria Preta mine, Rio Itapicuru greenstone belt, Bahia, Brazil?, was completed in 1991 at the University of Southampton, United Kingdom. Since he joined the Institute of Geosciences - UNICAMP in 1985, his main field of investigation has been focused on the characterization and evolution of hydrothermal fluids within the Earth´s crust with implications on the formation and exploration of ore deposits. His research activities have been mainly on orogenic gold, and intrusion-centered gold base metal deposits and iron oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) systems in Precambrian cratons and related orogenic belts in Brazil. From 2007 to 2008 he spent his sabbatical period as a visiting professor at the Economic Geology Research Unit of the James Cook University (Australia) sponsored by CNPq. In the period of 1997 to 2005 Roberto Xavier was the Associate Director of the IG/UNICAMP, where he also occupied the position of Director between 2013 and 2017. In January 2016 he became the Regional Vice President for South America on behalf of the Society of Economic Geologists (SEG). (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
