Research

Research keywords

  • Crustal Evolution
  • Petrogenesis
  • Petrology

Research expertise

Current fields of research include:

1. Petrological and geochemical investigations of rocks of mantle origin associated with granite batholiths, in order to better assess the tectonic history of the New England Orogen.

2. Studies of the geochemical development of mafic enclaves in granites, and their contribution to granite geochemistry.

3. Petrological and geochemical investigations of rocks of mantle origin (chiefly dykes) associated with granite batholiths, in order to assess their contribution to both the variation within, and the differences between granitoid suites.

4. Petrogenetic studies of contrasting granitoid suites, including the assessment of mantle versus crustal sources, and the role of hybridization.

5. Studies on the emplacement mechanisms of granitoid rocks at varying crustal levels.

6. Further zircon work on granites of the New England Batholith to refine ages of the suites (particularly S-types) and to date source rocks to aid with characterization of the crustal source(s).

Memberships

Body relevant to professional practice.

  • Geological Society of Australia

Administrative

Administrative expertise

To date I have had little admin expertise, with limited role on various committees (mainly curriculum development).

From July 1 this year, I will be sharing the deputy head of school role with two others in SELS, and have also joined an advisory panel to oversee changes in the large equipment centres run by the Reserach Branch (electron microscope and X-ray unit etc.)

Teaching

Teaching keywords

  • Field Geology
  • Geology
  • Mineralogy
  • Petrology

Teaching expertise

My teaching expertise at 2000 & 3000 level focuses on mineralogy and petrology as well as field geology. I am also heavily involved in forst year teaching, coordinating both 1000 level courses. These first year courses have undergon extensive curriculum redevelopment over the last five years, and AI have overseen the merging of geology and physical geography this level.
