Faculty of Sciences

Professor Alan Collins received a BSc (Hons.) degree from the Royal School of Mines, Imperial College, The University of London, then completed a PhD in 1997 at The University of Edinburgh on the tectonics of SW Turkey. This work identified multiple stages of thrust-sheet movement, foreland basin formation and subsequent consumption in the ophiolite-bearing Lycian nappes along the Aegean and Mediterranean coast of Turkey. After completing this, Alan went down in the crust and back in time to work on the Ediacaran-Cambrian amalgamation of Gondwana, working initially in Madagascar, and later in East Africa, India, Western Australia and East Antarctica. Using tectono-stratigraphic techniques, he has helped unravel much of the East African Orogen to produce a model for the collision of Neoproterozoic India with the central Africa. This work began in Leicester University, UK, and continued in the Tectonics Special Research Centre in Curtin University and The University of Western Australia.

Prof. Collins commenced at The University of Adelaide as a Senior Lecturer in 2005 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2009 and Professor in 2014. His on-going research directs various aspects of geoscience, including palaeomagnetism, structural geology, geochronology and sedimentology to answer geologically significant questions. He was awarded an Australian Research Council 'Future Fellowship' in 2012.

Alan Collins was Academic Group Leader of Geology and Geophysics in the School of Earth and Environmental Science from 2010-2012 and is now Director of the Centre for Tectonics, Resources and Exploration (TRaX).

Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD — email supervisor to discuss availability.

I am a data-focussed geologist whose research focusses on applying a wide range of earth science specialisations to address tectonic questions. Specific projects I am interested in range from tectonic geography problems, like unravelling the formation of Gondwana, investigating the exhumation history of inland Australia, or investigating the timing of SE Asia accretion, to better understanding a focussed process-based question, such as the fluid nature, timing and physical conditions during detachment fault deformation. Most of my research involves a combination of geochronology/thermochronology with geochemistry and structural geology. Most involves student-focussed projects, significant fieldwork (often international and/or in remote regions), and most projects involve collaboration with a wide-range of specialists based throughout the world.
