I am a lecturer in Geophysics at the University of Liverpool (since
2008). My research interests are in archaeomagnetism and
palaeomagnetism including advancement of palaeointensity methodology.
I completed my PhD in 2000 (at Liverpool) on the development of the
microwave palaeointensity technique. I have completed a number of
postdoctoral positions including a year spent at CNRS Rennes, France
as part of the EU archaeomagnetic network AARCH (otherwise I have been
I work with both traditional and microwave palaeomagnetic techniques
and with archaeological and geological material to address a range of
scientific issues including short term variations of the field, field
behaviour through reversals and during periods of field stability such
as the Cretaceous Normal Superchron.
