Biography

My principal research interests centre on the use of electrical and electromagnetic techniques to investigate environmental and geophysical problems. Examples of this include: - Using the process of electromagnetic induction in the Earth due to time variations in the geomagnetic field, as a means of determining and understanding the electrical resistivity structure of geothermal and volcanic regions - The use of dc electric resistivity techniques in groundwater studies - The application of electrical methods to understanding the internal microstructure of sea ice. I am also active in using palaeomagnetic records to try and understand the process of reversals of the geomagnetic field.
