Research Interests

My research interests lie within the field of marine geology and have evolved from a background in traditional terrestrial geology, structural geology and tectonics, sedimentology, and oceanography. To this end, I believe in a integrated approach to marine geologic research, taking full advantage of not only modern geophysical tools and techniques (e.g. swath bathymetry, sidescan sonar, multichannel seismic), advances in marine micropaleontology (paleo-proxy applications), and high resolution sediment radiometric dating and geochemical techniques (e.g. AMS14C,210Pb, DDT), but also well established geological methods (e.g. structural mapping, coring, detailed sedimentary petrology, physical property logging, stratigraphic correlation). This background and approach has enabled me to pursue several collaborative projects during the last several years related to continental margin processes offshore western North America, India, Norway, and most recently Svalbard.
