Biography:
I completed a PhD in Geology in 2012 at Ghent University, on intracontinental deformation within Central Asia. I continued this research as a post-doctoral fellow at Ghent University from 2012-2013. Since March 2013, I commenced as a Lecturer at The University of Adelaide, teaching into the courses Tectonics III and Sedimentary Geology II and focussing my research on multi-method thermochronology (with main expertise in fission track and U-Th-Sm/He techniques) to unravel the thermo-tectonic history of various regions (Central Asia, South Australia, India, Indochina, western Africa,...). In January 2016, I was promoted to Senior Lecturer at The University of Adelaide.

My research focuses on the application of multi-method thermochronology (including U/Pb, fission track, U-Th-Sm/He analysis) to unravel the tectonic history of (mainly) intracontinental mountain belts. This work is conducted on both basement rocks, which cooled when the mountains were uplifted, as well as detrital sediments which are the erosion products of the mountains. The outcomes of my research are presented in >70 international research papers and provide constraints on the timing of (1) the formation of continents, (2) mountain building and (3) burial in adjacent sedimentary basins. I have mainly worked in Central Asia (Tien Shan, Altai, Sayan, Beishan), South and Central Australia, Southeast Asia (Thailand) and SE India. Besides applied research I’m also actively involved in the development of novel analytical approaches to in-situ geo- and thermochronology.
