Curtin Earth Dynamics Research Group

We study the dynamic distribution and evolution of tectonic plates on Earth through time, geodynamic driving mechanisms and tectonic processes, and their relevance to Earth resources and environments. We have a particular focus on supercontinent cycles, global plume records, and 4D geodynamic modelling. Our research involves palaeomagnetism, all aspects of field-based studies, geochemical, petrological, and geochronological analyses, data-mining, numerical modelling, and regional to global syntheses.
