Dr Tim Raub
Lecturer; Director of Research; Dissertation Co-ordinator


I am an Earth scientist with interests spanning the dawn of complex life, the onset of granitic magmatism, and major episodes of environmental change. My research tools include field geology, environmental magmatism, and geochemistry. Prior to St Andrews I was a postdoc at Caltech, and a PhD student at Yale.
