Overview

OverviewText1

  • I am a geologist with research interests in a wide range of earth science fields. I completed my PhD at the University of Adelaide in 2001 and subsequently held a postdoctoral appointment at the University of Melbourne and an ARC Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Research School of Earth Sciences at the ANU. I am currently an ARC Research Fellow in the School of Earth Sciences at the University of Melbourne. My main research interest is in understanding the long term evolution of the Australian continent. I also have an appointment as a Senior Lecturer in Structural Geology and Tectonics in the School, to which I will return when my ARC Fellowship is completed.
