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. I have active research projects in the following areas: Mid-Ocean Ridges The Coastal Zone Gas Hydrates Archean Craton Formation Subduction Zone Structure For more information on coastal research go to
