I am interested in unravelling the geological archives of those curious and intriguing periods of our planet’s history that record global-scale readjustments of the Earth system. My research is steeped in detailed field geology and I collaborate with geochronologists and isotope geochemists to try and create datasets that underpin, constrain and test ideas about the causes and consequences of those fascinating times of wholesale environmental change.
