Research Interests

I am interested in understanding how processes within the Earth's mantle are manifest at the Earth's surface.  Blobs of buoyant, hot and dense, cold material within the Earth's mantle rise and fall forming domes and basins at the surface which are of order 1 km in amplitude and 1,000 km in diameter.  This process, which is known as dynamic topography, has profound transient effects on a number of geological processes.  My research interests involve observing the effect that dynamic topography has on processes such as landscape evolution, the sedimentary record, sea-level markers, heat flow and magmatism.
