Steve Boger is a structural and metamorphic geologist whose research is focused on Gondwana tectonics–primarily on locating and understanding the evolution of the collisional belts along which the components of Gondwana were sutured. This work has given him the opportunity to work in Antarctica and Madagascar where he maintains ongoing research interests.
More recent work has focused on the evolution of Gondwana’s peripheries, principally the depositional and subsequent orogenic histories of both the north African and European margin, as well as the northern margin of Australian plate exposed in East Timor.
Steve completed his PhD at the University of Melbourne in 2001 and in his early career held postdoctoral positions at both Monash and Melbourne universities. More recently he has held visiting scientist positions in Germany and Norway and has spent a number of years consulting on geological mapping projects in Africa. His present role in the School is to lecture Structural and Metamorphic Geology and Tectonics and Geodynamics.
