SENIOR RESEARCH FELLOW
Ian works with three industry-funded projects, PLATES, GBDS and the AGL group at BEG. His focus within these groups is tectonic evolution of continental margins, particularly how faulting develops and how early-stage sedimentation interacts with structure. A sideline is how low-angle faulting thins the crust, with field work in the Death Valley region providing an excellent laboratory.
