Personal profile

Research interests

My current research falls under three main themes:

  • Geochemistry and mineralogy
  • Quaternary climate changes
  •  Pedagogy in geology


The first two strands are linked in the application of geochemical and mineralogical techniques to problems in sediment provenace, archaeology and landscape evolution in southern Africa. The latter is a more recent development where collaborations are being developed to consider applications of CGI and related techniques to teaching in the earth sciences.
