Profile

Biography

Geological and geochemical research into the evolution of oceanic crust, its interaction with the oceans and the formation of mineral deposits.

As Professor of Marine Geology, I lead the NOC Marine Mineral Research team. My expertise is in oceanic crust and the formation of mineral deposits including volcanic and tectonic processes, hydrothermal circulation and metalliferous mineralisation. I use and develop a combination of technologies including remote and autonomous underwater vehicles, sea-floor geophysics, geology, petrology and geochemistry to investigate sub-oceanic mantle melting, volcanic activity and the formation and fate of sea-floor mineral deposits.
