Research Interests

Theoretical Geophysics, Geochemistry, and Petrology

My research interests encompass a broad spread of geophysics and geochemistry. I use techniques from continuum mechanics, numerical analysis and statistics to tackle a wide variety of problems in the Earth Sciences. Current topics of interest include:

  • The evolution and differentiation of the Earth from its formation to the present day
  • The dynamics of melt transport in Earth's mantle
  • The surface expressions of mantle convection (dynamic topography)
  • The origin and evolution of mantle heterogeneity
  • The growth and dynamics of Earth's inner core
