My research focusses on the use of isotope geochemistry to understand tectonics and orogenesis.

Utilising Lu-Hf and Sm-Nd garnet geochronology, and Rb-Sr systematics in micas, I am constructing a detailed history of metamorphic and tectonic events in the Caledonides of Shetland, in order to understand its role in the wider North Atlantic Caledonide belt.

My research uses the various geochemical instruments housed in the RHUL geochemistry laboratories (TIMS, MC-ICPMS, LA-ICPMS, XRF, EMPA).
