Heather Jamieson grew up in Noranda, Quebec and is now a Professor in the Department of Geological Sciences and Geological Engineering at Queen’s University, Kingston, Canada. She also holds an appointment and teaches courses in the School of Environmental Studies at Queen’s. Her expertise is in the area of environmental geochemistry, particularly the mineralogical controls on the mobility of metals and metalloids (notably arsenic) in mine waste and the application of synchrotron-based X-ray experiments and other microanalytical methods to metal speciation in mine tailings, soils, sediments and household dust. 

Much of her fieldwork is in the Canadian Arctic but she has also conducted research in Nova Scotia, California, Montana, Spain and Australia.  Heather has supervised multiple Master’s and Ph.D. students and has delivered online training in mine waste geochemistry.
