I am a Grant Funded Researcher at the Australian School of Petroleum, University of Adelaide. I have expertise in sedimentology, stratigraphy, palynology and basin modelling. My research has applications in understanding past palaeogeographies and a basin's resource potential.

My current research primarily focuses on enhancing our understanding of the Cooper Basin's sedimentary and tectonic evolution. I will use data collected from the project to establish the relationship between depositional environments, coeval tectonism and identifying sites suitable for carbon capture and storage. My other research interests include the evolution of Australia's southern margin using new data acquired from IODP Expedition 369 (September to November 2017), Middle to Upper Jurassic coal-bearing strata in eastern Australia and palaeobotany.
