I am Project Officer in the Ar lab in the Department of Environment, Earth and Ecosystems and am lab manager for the Ar-Ar and Noble Gas Research Laboratory.
My research has been largely focused on the Ar dating of basalts from the Faroe Islands, Paleocene-Eocene basalts associated with the North Atlantic Large Igneous Province and the initial opening of the North Atlantic Ocean.
I am involved in range of research on going in the lab and in the development of the techniques and applications of the laser based Ar dating work at the Open University.
I have recently taken on the role of Radiation Protection Supervisor for the Department of Environment, Earth and Ecosystems.
In addition to teaching on Open University modules our academics are engaged in ground breaking research that benefits individuals and society.
