Qualifications: MSc Northeast China PhD Waikato
Joined the staff in 1997 after completing his PhD.
Research interests include tectonics, structural geology, fission track thermochronology and basin analysis. Currently researching thermo-tectonic history of the Eastern Tibetan Plateau (the Xianshuihe fault zone area) and Western Sichuan Basin (oil-gas field), China, assessed by fission track analysis.
