Projects per year
My research is focused on understanding the mechanics of large-scale continental deformation and the evolution of orogenic systems. I use a multidisciplinary approach that includes structural geology, isotope geochemistry, metamorphic and igneous petrology, geothermobarometry, U-Th-Pb geochronology, (U-Th)/He and 40Ar/39Ar thermochronology, paleomagnetism, satellite remote sensing, and thermal modelling.
I have studied active normal faulting in the Gulf of Corinth, Greece, the evolution of metamorphic core complexes in the Basin and Range province, and the role of extension in the Bhutan Himalaya.
As part of the Bristol PCD Group, I am involved in a multidisciplinary project funded by the global mining company, BHP, to understand the formation of porphyry copper deposits in the Central Andes and - from 2021 - the Western US Cordillera.
