My research deals primarily with sedimentary rocks, especially field-based studies, with particular emphasis on how interpretation of these can contribute to regional geological problems. I have a particular interest in the geology of Ireland and adjacent areas. Current work is looking at the Carboniferous sedimentary record of north and west Ireland and trying to evaluate the relative contributions of regional tectonics and global sea level changes in the development of the preserved stratigraphy. I have ongoing interests in the dynamic evolution of the Laurentian margin during the early Palaeozoic.
