Research Interests: The solid earth defines many aspects the economic, industrial and social norms of our everyday lives. It provides both physical and energy resources, it provides places where we can live and it is a source of natural disasters which irreversibly change peoples lives. Addressing all of these opportunities and risks requires a sound understanding of the physical processes behind them as well as an appreciation of inherent uncertainty that the Earth will always throws at us. I have three main research focusses1. Earthquake Physics Incremental deformation of rocks 2. Carbon Capture and Storage Processes that go on inside rocks 3. Collisional Mountain Building Evolution and formation of rocks
