My objective is to undertake exciting, innovative and multi-disciplinary research in Earth Sciences, and communicate this through research publications and teaching. I look to challenge existing paradigms and ideas, and devise new ways and models for studying volcanic processes and deposits, as well as applying new techniques to solve problems. In my teaching, I encourage students to take the same approach, and to be able to critically assess information presented to them. I have taught at a number of institutions in a variety of environments and at different levels of academic understanding, including classroom-based subjects to field courses for undergraduate/post-graduate students and professional (industry) geologists. I have previously contributed to undergraduate degrees in Geology, Earth Systems Science, Earth & Planetary Science and Environmental Hazards and Disaster Management. At QUT, I teach into first, second and third year subjects in Natural Hazards (ERB201), Igneous Petrology (ERB206), Plate Tectonics (ERB304), Evolving Earth (ERB102) and SEB104 Grand Challenges in Science.
