Welcome to my research group web page. The Queen's Tectonics Research Laboratory conducts research aimed at understanding the dynamic processes operating in mountain belts, with a focus on the structural and thermal evolution of the continental crust and the influence of reactivated faults on regional seismicity.
- Daniela has just successfully completed the examination of her MSc thesis entitled 'Thermal history of the Frontenac Arch in SE Ontario, Canada constrained from low-temperature thermochronology'. Well done! (January 2023)
- Congratulations to Taylor for her successful promotion to our PhD program; here’s to new and exciting research in the coming years! (March 2022)
