Currently, I teach the following courses:


Principles of Structural Geology (GEOL 340). This course covers the development of faults and folds and provides you with the necessary skills to reconstruct the deformational history of the area in which you are interested

Advanced Structural Geology (GEOL 940). This course revisits the geo-mechanical and structural concepts developed in GEOL 340 and provides an introduction to techniques and concepts necessary in the field of hydrocarbon exploration.


Tectonics (GEOL 440/840) This course covers the evolution of the earth's crust and continents, from the earliest Precambrian time to present-day deformation regimes. The focus is on N American geology, but other key tectonic events are also discussed.

Introduction to Physical Geology (GEOL 101) This course is designed to teach you something about the wonders of the world in which you live and to encourage you to think in a scientific fashion.


Geology of North America (GEOS 898). This course is part of the NMSSI listings and is aimed at High School teachers. It runs for 2 weeks during the summer. We start with the Precambrian geology of N America and work our way through the exciting geological events that have made up the continent.

Seminar in Structural Geology and Tectonics (GEOL 945). This is a discussion and learning session for members of the Structural Geology Research Group

Fundamentals of Geophysics (GEOL 498/898) This course is designed to give the student a broad overview of geophysical topics and techniques, including plate tectonics, seismology, gravity, isostasy, magnetism and heat flow. It is co-taught with Dr Mindi Searls.
