Luminescence Dating

Tim is an earth scientist with expertise in Earth surface processes, sedimentology and structural geology. My research focuses on combining novel and innovative techniques in luminescence dating, sedimentology and geomorphology to answer timely research questions in both pure and applied aspects of Earth and Environmental Sciences.

An underlying theme to Tim's research is the link between the geodynamic processes which shape our continents, and the geomorphic processes which modify these. Quantifying, modelling and monitoring earth system processes, from the local to global scale, and operating at timescales from millennia to minutes, is fundamental to predicting the impacts of global and environmental change.
