About Us

We are a group of metamorphic geologists and geochronologists hosted within The Institute of Geoscience Research (TIGeR) at Curtin University. Our principal research interests include high-T and ultrahigh-T metamorphism; high–P and ultrahigh–P metamorphism; fluid flow in mid-crustal rocks; the P–T–t–d evolution and tectonics of metamorphic belts, and the application of petrology to understanding orogenic evolution; and, secular change and styles of tectonics and metamorphism.

This website is dedicated to the dissemination of information, images and datasets collected from high-grade metamorphic and ancient terranes that the team has visited and worked on.

The links above will take you to pages that have information on the area, photo galleries of the rocks and region and well as some links to the work we have published on the area. Please feel free to use any of the images you find useful for teaching.

If you want any further information get in contact with us via the Contact page.

The AESC 2023 is holding a special symposium on Dynamic Evolution of Earth and its Environment.

We invite you to submit an abstract for this symposium and other themes at the AESC 2023, held 27-30 June 2023 at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.


Today we're featuring @AESC2023 Theme: Magmas & mountain belts

Sessions: Brittle and ductile deformation: from microstructures to supercontinents
