The type of research I do can be described as utilising metamorphic geology, geochronology, tectonics, structural geology and tectonostratigraphy. I effectually investigate the natural rock record that is a consequence of chemical, thermal and physical processes that have redistributed material and shaped the architecture of Earth’s crust, in order to understand the processes involved in orogeny and crustal evolution.

More specifically, the types of research projects I run or am involved in use the above disciplines to better understand, for example:

  • large-scale tectonic processes (e.g. things such as continental assembly)
  • the geochemical organisation of the crust
  • thermal drivers for metamorphism
  • how tectonic and metamorphic reactivation of old, residual crust can occur
  • how the crust can get really hot on a regional scale
  • how does the geochronological record from minerals such as zircon and monazite tell us not only about timescales, but also about the possible drivers of metamorphism
  • how do minerals such as monazite behave as a consequence of prograde (up-temperature) metamorphism, and how does this impact on the heat-producing capability of crustal rocks

My principal research interests and passions are crustal metamorphism, the behaviour of accessory minerals monazite and zircon and developing quantitative tools that enable the study of mid- to deep-crustal systems.

  • 2010-2016: level 3 metamorphic geology (in Igneous & Metamorphic Geology III course). Topics covered: petrography, thermobarometry, diffusion, heat transfer, pressure-temperature paths, metamorphism and tectonics, geodynamics from the metamorphic rock record; and
  • 2011-2016: coordinated and taught level 3 field geology (Field Geoscience Program III), which is a 2-week remote field-camp-based geological mapping course.
  • 2016: designed, coordinated and ran the Tectonics III 3-day field camp that showcased the geology of the Delamerian Orogen.
  • 2015: designed, coordinated and ran the industry sponsored Minerals Tertiary Education Council (MTEC) 5-day short course, Mineral Exploration Through Cover. It was designed around the national UNCOVER initiative theme of unlocking mineral resources.
  • 2006-2010: level 2 metamorphic geology (in Igneous and Metamorphic Geology II).

Since 2006 (my first year of supervising students):
