WELCOME!

I'm a structural geologist and senior lecturer at the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Gothenburg, Sweden. I'm interested in all types of rock and ice structures  and their relation to small- and large-scale tectonic processes.


 Research

 

My main research interests are in all aspects of quantitative rock structural analysis from micro to macro scale. Mineral crystallography and complex rock fabrics such as mineral distribution patterns and pattern anisotropy are used to obtain quantitative kinematic data on the progress of deformation in metamorphic and magmatic rocks and, in ice. To obtain these data, microstructural studies and laboratory experiments using rock analogues such as norcamphor and ice are combined with image analysis techniques and GIS applications and, new methods to determine rock structures were developed. Results from these quantitative studies are tested in field-based projects in Australia, Brazil, Portugal and Macedonia.

 

Teaching

RESEARCH INTERESTS

My recent research activities are related to all aspects of quantitative rock structural analysis from micro to macro scale. I work with all type of rocks including natural and artifical ice. I work also on various regional structural geology and tectonic projects such as in Western Australia, Portugal and Macedonia
