Research Overview


  • My research focuses on the role of deep-Earth processes for the evolution of Earth’s surface. My particular approach consists of iterating between the construction and analysis of geodynamic models, the analysis of global datasets, and the synthesis of regional observations. This approach allows me to identify key processes explaining first-order observations, and ensures that the models I develop are consistent with data. 

     

    Topics of interest

     

    • Interaction between lithospheric and mantle processes
    • Long-term and secular evolution of sea level
    • Landscape evolution
    • Phanerozoic dynamic topography
    • Phanerozoic global tectonics
    • Phanerozoic evolution of the structure of the deep Earth 
    • Thermal evolution of the solid Earth

     

     

    Methods

     

    • Geodynamic modeling (CitcomS, Ellipsis)
    • Spatio-temporal data analysis (GPlates)
    • Analytical solutions of physical problems
