Research interests

Research interests:

Applying quantitative dating techniques to understand Earth and environmental processes over geological timescales and enhancing the methodology underpinning these techniques. I have developed expertise in undertaking low temperature thermochronology, geomorphology and structural geology investigations within an academic and industry framework in a variety of geological settings, particularly passive margins and cratonic intracontinental domains.

 

Technical Expertise:

Sample preparation:

Field sampling

Rock crushing

Magnetic mineral separation

Heavy liquid mineral separation

Mounting, grinding and polishing sample preparation

Isotope spiking and acid dissolution sample preparation

Acid etching of minerals

 

Geochemical analysis

Noble gas vacuum-extraction.

Mass Spectrometry: Quadrupole MS, isotope dilution ICP-MS, laser ablation ICP-MS).

 

Geochronology analysis

Fission Track analysis

(U-Th-Sm)/He analysis

U-Pb dating
