Research Overview


  • I am fascinated by plate tectonic processes, from the creation of mountain ranges at collisional boundaries to the splitting of supercontinents. I am also interested in how these processes can drive evolutionary changes in organisms. My research, therefore, involves a mixture of specialisations. This more often than not involves mapping and sampling campaigns in remote regions (e.g. West Papua, the Himalaya) to document the relative timing of magmatic, metamorphic and deformation events. I then use biostratigraphic and isotopic data to determine when these events occurred in the geological record. I am also interested in hydrocarbon exploration, investigating large-scale structural controls on gold and copper mineralisation, diamond exploration and the development of methodologies for isotopic dating. Should you have any questions about my research or be interested in student projects please feel free to contact me
