Associate professor, University of Sydney

I am a marine geoscientist and plate tectonics expert. I was awarded my PhD from the University of Sydney in 2005 and an Australian Postdoctoral Fellowship in 2009 and am currently an ARC Future Fellow in the School of Geosciences, University of Sydney. My research largely focusses on using our knowledge of surface plate kinematics and the marine geological record to understand processes occurring in the deep earth, how the deep Earth communicates with the surface and the influence of tectonics on Earth's long-term climate. While much of my research is global in scale and scope, I have a particular interest in the tectonic, geodynamic and climatic evolution of the SW Pacific and Zealandia.
