    Personal profile

    Research Interests:

    I currently hold an Honorary Research Fellow position with Aberdeen University studying a number of aspects of Large Igneous Province volcanism including stratigraphy, geochemistry and deposit distributions in space and time.

    A strong current focus on areas of volcanic research applications to resource exploration, development and drilling both off and onshore.

    Research on the Faroe Islands Basalt Group geochemical stratigraphy and its implications to geochemical correlation within the Faroe Shetland basins and Large Igneous Provinces as a whole.

    Developments in well based analysis of volcanic stratigraphy using both ditch cuttings and petrophysical well log data.

    Involved in well log and cuttings analysis of Krafla (Iceland) geothermal wells as part of the IMAGE (Integrated Methods for Advanced Geothermal Exploration) EU project.

    Field facies analysis and mapping within volcanic terrains and the interaction of volcanism with sedimentary basin drainage systems.

    Member of the StratLIP research group University of Aberdeen.
