I am an Associate Professor and ARC Future Fellow, conducting research on the thermo-tectonic evolution of the continental crust. My main expertise is focussed on the application of thermochronology, with emphasis on apatite U-Pb and fission track dating. In addition, I’m taking a leading role in the development of novel in situ dating methods, including Lu-Hf and Re-Os. I coordinate and teach the courses Tectonics and Sedimentary Geology.

Biography:
2012: PhD in Geology at Ghent University, Belgium
2012 - 2013: Postdoctoral researcher at Ghent University, Belgium
2013 - 2015: Lecturer at the University of Adelaide
2016 - 2020: Senior Lecturer at The University of Adelaide
2021 - ongoing: Associate Professor at The University of Adelaide
2022 - 2025: ARC Future Fellow

My research focuses on the application of multi-method thermochronology (primarily U/Pb, fission track, and Lu-Hf dating) to unravel the tectonic history of the continental crust. This work is conducted on basement rocks, which cooled when mountains were uplifted, as well as detrital sediments which are the erosion products of mountains. The outcomes of my research are presented in >90 international research papers and provide constraints on the timing of (1) the formation of continents, (2) mountain building, (3) burial in adjacent sedimentary basins and (4) mineralization processes. 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 taking a leading role in the development of novel analytical approaches for in-situ geo- and thermochronology.
