Unveiling the spatial structure of functional, morphological and phylogenetic diversity in Phanerozoic animals

The fossil record is our only direct evidence for understanding how biodiversity was assembled through deep time. Recently, there has been a paradigm-shift in how this data is analysed, moving from a notionally "global" reading to a spatially-explicit approach. Read more

Resources for sustainable energy: ore formation by percolative reactive flow

This project seeks to test a novel hypothesis for the formation of layers of ore-grade rock in igneous intrusions. The project combines mathematical analysis, laboratory experiments and geological fieldwork. The results could provide a new exploration framework to supply minerals required to achieve Net Zero.

From dislocations to subduction: the microphysics of olivine deformation and its geodynamic implications.

This project seeks to extend a theory for crystal-dislocation interactions at the lattice scale, upscale it to a tensorial theory applicable at the continuum scale, and apply it in simplified geodynamical models with rapid changes in stress (e.g., post-seismic, post-glacial). New laboratory experiments by collaborators will constrain model development.

Tidal dissipation, magmatism and mantle convection on Io.

This project seeks to develop simplified mathematical models of the coupling between tidal dissipation, melting and melt segregation, and mantle convection on Jupiter’s moon, Io. This moon is the most volcanically active body in the solar system and is powered almost entirely by tidal dissipation.

Early Earth magnetism: exploring if Earth’s magnetic field played a role in habitability

Earth’s magnetic field is often invoked as a key criterion in the habitability of our planet. A planetary magnetic field is thought to shield Earth’s surface from harmful cosmic radiation, and protect the atmosphere from being stripped away by the solar wind. Read more

The prevalence of eccentricity forcing on evolution and the carbon cycle

Detailed morphological records of coccolithophores over the last 2 million years coupled with whole genome analysis have, for the first time, revealed that there is a strong 400 kyr periodicity to the speciation and evolution of these calcifying algae. Read more
