Current CV



As a geologist with a geophysics PhD, I enjoy participating in projects which combine very different branches of science to understand the Earth.  I'm currently interested in the recent tectonic evolution of southern Africa, especially the application of paleoseismology to understand the kinematics and timing of recent earthquake faults, as well as the role of the mantle in supporting elevated topography across the continent.
