My research seeks to understand the mechanics of large-scale continental deformation, the evolution of orogenic systems, and the role of tectonics in ore formation. Over the past decade or so, my focus has been on understanding how tectonics, magmatism, volcanism, and landscape evolution combine to control the formation, enrichment, and preservation of copper deposits, particularly in northern Chile and the western USA. My research relies on a multidisciplinary approach – rooted in good old fashioned field geology – which includes structural geology, igneous and metamorphic petrology, isotope geochemistry, geochronology, thermochronology, remote sensing, and thermal modelling.
