I received my BSc. (Hons) from the University of Adelaide in 2014 after spending the year conducting my honours research in collaboration with academics at the State Key Laboratory of Lithospheric Evolution at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing.
I commenced my PhD in late 2015, focusing on intracontinental reactivation in the Central Asian Orogenic Belt (CAOB), particularly with regard to the influence of plate margin forces such as the far-field effect of the India-Eurasia convergence. By applying multiple thermochronometers (apatite fission track, U-Th-Sm/He, U-Pb) to a range of study locations throughout the CAOB (Kazakhstan, far West China, southern Siberia), my research will provide a framework to understand the temporal and spatial evolution of thermo-tectonic reactivation in the region.
The focus of my research is the intracontinental tectonic response of the Central Asian Orogenic Belt to events at the Eurasian plate margin. I use a variety of low temperature thermochronological methods to constrain the timing and rate of cooling of critical regions, and link this cooling history to the exhumation and uplift associated with mountain building and orogeny. This, in turn, can help pinpoint the timing of important global tectonic events such as the ongoing India-Eurasia collision. The role of inherited structure and reactivation is an important facet of the project that has implications for mineral deposit formation and remobilisation. My research also contributes to our understanding of the patterns of weathering, erosion, and sedimentary deposition, developing our understanding of the evolution of sedimentary basins.
