What i’m up to at the moment

I’m a research fellow and lecturer in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Birkbeck, University of London, specialising in planetary geology.

My research combines experiments, theory, and observations, to better understand the geological evolution of terrestrial planets and moons. I’m particularly interested in the role of ice and hydrated minerals in the water budget of mars and the evolution of large icy moons, but have spent a lot of time looking at volcanic processes on Venus too.

Above are links to the research problems that I’m interested in, and the methods that I use to address them. Most of these are borne out in my publications and CV.
