Function and Responsibilities:

I am a postdoctoral researcher working with Taylor Schildgen as part of the GyroSCoPe project.

Research Interests:

I am primarily interested in the ways in which tectonic, geodynamic and climatic processes are expressed and recorded in Earth's surface landscape and geology.

Specific projects include:

  • Origins and evolution of cratonic basins (particularly Congo, Parnaíba, Taoudeni).
  • Formation and significance of ancient transient landscapes (McNab and White, 2021).
  • Neogene-Quaternary uplift, magmatism and geodynamic evolution of Anatolia (McNab et al., 2018; 2019).
  • Active tectonics in Afghanistan and the Tajik Depression (McNab et al., 2019).
