My expertise is in uranium-lead (U-Pb) geochronology by isotope dilution thermal ionisation mass spectrometry (ID-TIMS). Research via geochronology presents opportunities to explore a wide array of geological questions that span the entire timescale. From the development of greenstone belts and Precambrian gneiss terranes, to establishing rates of dinosaur evolution in southern Alberta, my geological and isotopic investigations help us to better understand the development of Earth’s lithosphere and the evolution of life on our planet. I work on multi-disciplinary teams that investigate the causes of the end-Permian extinctions, calibrate the timescale, and establish plate reconstruction using high precision dates on mafic magmatic events.
