WHAT I DO AT CSM

  • Teaching: Structural geology and tectonics; geological field data acquisition and interpretation, surface and underground geological mapping; geology and resources of SW England / Cornwall; supervision of BSc / MGeol / MSc projects. [more]
  • Research + Knowledge Transfer: SW England is a resource-rich region and superb natural laboratory that underpins most of my research. My interests are in all aspects of regional geological evolution, i.e. Variscan / post-Variscan tectonics and its influence on structural geology and sedimentation, magmatism, mineralisation and mineral / geothermal resources, as well as coastal landsliding. I'm actively engaged in research and knowledge transfer that contributes to the regional exploration and production activities of companies operating in the minerals / geothermal sector. [more]
