Senior Lecturer in Geology, University of Portsmouth

I am a geologist who specialises in the development and application of geochemical and microstructural techniques to problems in Earth and planetary science. My research aims to better understand the origin and evolution of the Earth’s crust, and how it has been shaped by meteorite impacts through time. Recently this has involved studying impact structures, some of Earth’s oldest rocks and meteorites from the Moon and Mars. I also apply the analytical tools developed for this research into the understanding of processes that lead to major deposits of metals that are critical for sustainable technologies.
