Research interests

Outcrop work drives my research interests. I am interested in using traditional field investigation techniques coupled with remote observation and model building to better understand the processes of sediment transport and deposition. Upscaling of outcrop scale detail provides a mechanism to understand the dynamics of larger scale sedimentary systems.  

Summary of research interests:

  • Study of sedimentary systems through field and digital surveying techniques
  • Use of GIS as a tool for investigating and compiling basin scale field datasets
  • Analysis of basin formation and infilling mechanisms
  • Sedimentary and sequence stratigraphy
  • Clastic sediment transport and depositional systems from fluvial, through to shallow marine systems and specialising in deep-water environments
  • Use of field and experimental analogue studies to predict reservoir quality and connectivity in subsurface hydrocarbon systems
