Personal profile


Elisabeth is interested in the use of accessory minerals to study a wide range of geological questions, from unravelling high-grade orogenic histories, to understanding bias in the detrital sedimentary record. Her research interests include:

  • Accessory mineral petrochronology (the simultaneous analysis of mineral ages and trace element compositions, which allows geologic events to be linked with dates), especially of under-utilised minerals such as titanite, rutile and apatite
  • Geochronology, thermochronology, and isotope geochemistry
  • Timing, rates and thermal history of tectonic processes including orogenesis (mountain building) and exhumation (path to the surface)
  • Processes that bias the crustal record

Elisabeth received her PhD in geo- and thermochronology from the University of Western Australia in 2018.
