"Achieving international distinction for creativity, innovation and excellence in geographical, geological and environmental education, research and outreach."
My research interests involve luminescence emission and magnetic resonance properties of minerals and biominerals, which are applied to problems in geochronology of the young earth, especially young coastal systems. I mainly use electron spin resonance dating and luminescence dating as tools in this work, but I am also involved in developing better dating methodologies to solve current problems in these areas. My newest area of interest is the use of luminescence properties of minerals to study sand transport in coastal systems, which spans the fields of coastal engineering, landscape evolution, storm recurrence frequency and shipwreck preservation issues in underwater archaeological sites.
