Research Interests

I’m a Lecturer in the School of Earth, Atmospheric and Life Sciences at the University of Wollongong. 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 involves mapping and sampling campaigns to document the relative timing of magmatic, metamorphic and deformation events, the use of isotopic dating and biostratigraphy to determine when tectonic events occur, synthesising information using 3D modelling and paleogeographic reconstructions.
