Wayne Powell's scientific research interests involve field-based petrological and geochemical studies applied to broader geological problems. Currently, he is involved in three lines of research: 1) the geological mechanisms that fractionate Sn isotopes in hydrothermal and magmatic systems; 2) the provenance and broad-scale trade of metals in the European Bronze Age using Sn and Cu isotopes; and 3) the effects of metamorphism on ore deposits. Prof. Powell is involved extensively in aspects of geoscience education design and reform. In particular he is interested in partnerships with museums, parks and community organizations to provide community-based learning opportunities for students of the earth sciences in urban environments, integration of Earth and environmental science, and empowering earth science teachers to use the City-as-Lab.
