Research Interests

My research is focused on the terrestrialization of animal life in the early Palaeozoic, from the sedimentary environments in which this event occurred in Euramerica and Australia, to the corresponding ichnological signatures in the rock record. The work is heavily field-based, largely taking place in Australia and the UK but supported by work in Norway, Ireland and USA.
