Professor of Palaeomagnetism Earth, Ocean and Ecological Sciences


Personal Statement

I lead the Geomagnetism Laboratory and the DEEP research group based within it. I have worked in labs in four different countries previously and studied the palaeomagnetism of some of the oldest rocks on Earth as well as much younger archaeological materials. My research focuses on describing and explaining the past behaviour of Earth's magnetic field on timescales from centuries to billions of years.
