Interests

  • I am a structural field geologist with a particular interest in using geo- and thermochronology to understand the thermal and temporal evolution of plate tectonic processes. Past Research Projects: Thermal evolution of continental rifting at magma-poor margins (Corsica, France) Detrital zircon geochronology of Copper and Bull Run Basins, NV Seismic anisotropy of single-crystal ferropericlase at high P-T
