Research interests

Small and large-scale aspects of Earth dynamics, and also the behaviour of metals and ceramics.

  • Fluid flow and chemical reaction in deforming systems
  • Modelling of diffusion creep (pressure solution, Coble creep, Nabarro-Herring creep) in single and multiphase systems (rocks, metals and ceramics) - details here
  • Fundamental interactions beteen stress and chemistry in crystalline materials
  • Applications of Electron Backscatter Diffraction in Earth sciences, ice physics, metallurgy and materials science
  • Observation and modelling of dislocation creep, recovery and recrystallisation in single and multiphase systems (rocks, metals and ceramics)
  • Observation and modelling of solid state phase transformations in single and multiphase systems (rocks, metals and ceramics)
  • Precambrian crustal evolution
  • Orogenic evolution and the significance of high pressure metamorphic rocks
