Introduction
My research interests span geophysics and geology, as I attempt to take a holistic approach to plate reconstruction by using both seismological imaging of the deep mantle alongside studies of the surface terranes. Alaska is my primary site of interest and I hope to unravel the enigma of its origin and formation.

Conference Paper

Alaska is made up of a mosaic of terranes that have enigmatic origins. Several plate restorations for the assembly of Alaska have been proposed, but their validity remains debated, partly due to the removal of vast volumes of oceanic plate material via subduction at the accretionary margins. The position, depth and volume of this subducted lithosph...
Article
The Hawaiian Island chain in the middle of the Pacific Ocean is a well-studied example of hotspot volcanism caused by an underlying upwelling mantle plume. The thermal and compositional nature of the plume alters the mantle phase transitions, which can be seen in the depth and amplitude of seismic discontinuities. This study utilises > 5000 high qu...

In this study, we have created 10 geoscience video lessons that follow the paired-teaching pedagogical approach. This method is used to supplement the standard school curriculum with video lessons, instructed by geoscientists from around the world, coupled with activities carried out under the guidance of classroom teachers. The video lessons intro...

Lack of access to science-based natural hazards information impedes the effectiveness of school-based disaster risk reduction education. To address this challenge, we have created ten geoscience video lessons that follow the paired teaching pedagogical approach. This method is used to supplement the standard school curriculum with video lessons ins...

Disaster education plays a key role in reducing vulnerability and increasing safety and community resilience to disaster risks. Geoscientists can inform mitigation and resilience strategies as they collect and analyze data relevant to disaster risks. However, many of the approaches they use to engage with the public involve one-way, asymmetric comm...

Project
This projects aims to reconstruct the tectonic history and palaeogeography of Alaska by synthesising subsurface seismic studies and surface geology. This is enabled by a wealth of new seismic data from Alaska and novel methods for connecting the surface to the deep (tomotectonics).
