My research is focused in the areas of sedimentology, palaeoecology and palaeontology.  My research projects are typically multidisciplinary and commonly focus on problems involving the interface between geological and biological systems. Current projects include: mixed clastic-carbonate sedimentology of Middle Triassic successions in western Canada; Triassic arid coastal depositional successions; sedimentology of Lower Triassic tight gas intervals in western Canada; application of ichnology to the Permian-Triassic extinction event and biotic recovery in its aftermath; the sedimentologic and stratigraphic evolution of Early to Middle Eocene successions in the Green River Basin, Wyoming; the ichnology and sedimentology of modern, macro-tidal, dissipative shoreface successions on Vancouver Island; and the Paleogene-Quaternary paleontology of Island southeast Asia (focusing on Sumatra, Kalimantan and Timor)


EAS 222 - Stratigraphy and Sedimentation

Origin of sedimentary materials; sedimentary processes; sedimentary structures, textures, and flow regimes; properties and classification of clastic and non-clastic rocks; sedimentary environments and facies in non-marine, coastal and marine settings; principles of stratigraphy, stratigraphic nomenclature and the stratigraphic column. Prerequisite: One of EAS 101, 103, 105 or 210. [Faculty of Science]
