When you look at granulites for too long you begin to believe what you write...

My research interests lie broadly in understanding the tectonic histories of mountain belts. I am particularly interested in the differences in orogenic processes from the Archean to present and how these differences are manifested in the rock record. I use a multidisciplinary approach that applies fieldwork, metamorphic and igneous petrology, structural geology, geochemistry, and geochronology to understand orogenesis and the evolution of the continental crust. I am also interested in fluid–rock interactions in the deep crust and applying the principles of igneous and metamorphic petrology to understand the petrogenesis of mineral deposits.
