Research 

Scientific Questions

  • Structure, stratigraphy and architecture of greenstone belts – links to mineralization
  • Structural and metamorphic evolution of very low-grade terrains (basins, fold and thrust belts)
  • Tectonic evolution of dome structures (granite and gneiss domes, metamorphic core complexes)
  • Development of spectroscopy methods for very low-grade petrology of phyllosilicates
  • Deep seismic reflection and crustal architecture
  • Geology of the Tasmanides
  • Secular trends in Earth history

Methods

  • Structural geology and tectonic analysis
  • Field mapping
  • Interpretation of geophysical datasets
  • Very low grade petrology (e.g., evolution of phyllosilicates)
  • geochronology (K-Ar, U-Pb)
