My research combines remote sensing, detailed field investigation, earthquake studies, and Quaternary dating methods to quantify the distribution, rates, and evolution of active faulting within deforming parts of the continents.
At present, I teach a course of lectures in structural geology to the 2nd-year undergraduates and also run practical classes in remote-sensing.
I have accompanied fieldtrips to Pembrokeshire (1st-year) and Greece (3rd-year).
The precise dating of landforms displaced by faulting also provides data relevant for studies of local earthquake hazard and past environmental change.
I am involved in teaching in organised lecture and practical courses, tutorials in small groups, field courses, and independent research projects.
New technological capabilities are providing a greater understanding of the underlying principles of age estimation and are stimulating innovative applications.
