Overview

New Zealand has a vast array of metamorphic rocks, ranging from low grade (zeolite facies) to high grade (eclogite facies). We look at the conditions, timing and nature of metamorphic processes, and how these impact the tectonics of the Zealandia continent.

Projects involve fieldwork in New Zealand, largely in the Southern Alps or Fiordland but other places could be considered, coupled with microscopic and isotopic analysis of the rocks.

I am happy to supervise a range of metamorphic-related topics.
