About us


The research carried out by our group is diverse and interdisciplinary, but the unifying thread is the study of the Precambrian Earth System. Key themes include the progressive oxygenation of the Earth surface environment, the record and climatic consequences of supercontinental breakup, the unique mineralizing environments of the Precambrian, and the cause, effects, and record of snowball Earth events. While a large part of our work is based on fieldwork on Precambrian rocks, another important avenue includes laboratory work, including development of new techniques and protocols used to interrogate the sedimentary record.
