    Welcome to my home page.  Our research is focused broadly on the interval of geologic time from the Paleoproterozoic (~2500 Ma) through the earliest Paleozoic (~490 Ma).  I use paleomagnetism and geochronology to trace the history of continents during that time period (particularly the continents making up Gondwana).  We also examine the relationship between plate configuration, paleoclimate and the evolution of life on earth.  Past and current projects have covered vastly different parts of the globe (Laurentia, Baltica, Urals, Eastern Africa, southwest Africa, Madagascar, India, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Mongolia).    We are always interested in attracting new graduate students.  I am also field camp director for the University of Florida Field Camp (Field Camp).
