Research Interests

The use of controlled source electromagnetic methods to measure the electrical resistivity of the seafloor in deep water, continental shelf and coastal environments.
Natural source electromagnetic techniques (i.e. Magnetotellurics) in oceanic and continental environments to look deeper into the mantle.
Active areas of research include:
Hydrothermal circulation at midocean ridges.
Melting processes beneath midocean ridges and subduction zones
Structure of the continental lithosphere.
Structural controls on groundwater discharge to the continental shelf.
Mapping locations of shallow gas hydrates.
Processes involved in coastal change.
