GEODYNAMICS AND MODELING
Professor, EarthByte Group, University of Sydney
His EarthByte research group is known for pursuing open innovation, involving the collaborative development of open-source paleogeographic information system software as well as global digital data sets made available under a creative commons license. One of the fundamental aims of the EarthByte Group is geodata synthesis through space and time, assimilating the wealth of disparate geological and geophysical data into four-dimensional (space-time) plate tectonic and Earth models. His research interests include marine geology and geophysics, plate tectonics, geodynamics, basin evolution, paleoclimate, paleoceanography, the deep carbon cycle,virtual globes, simulation and modelling as well as big/complex geoscience data analysis.
