My main scientific interest is the understanding of micro- and mesoscale processes and their link to macro-scale phenomena.
To achieve this, it is essential to quantify microstructures and thus micro-structural processes active during a variety of P-T-fluid
conditions. In addition, the development of new techniques to observe, interpret and evaluate processes in the Earth and under
planets is part of my research. Fields of research interest include: (i) structural geology and large-scale tectonics, (ii)
microstructural and-chemical analysis, (iii) microdynamic modelling, (iv) experimental deformation and heating of rocks and
analogue materials i.e. metals, (v) field mapping, (vi) rheology and deformation mechanisms in rocks and ice.
