Application and development of thermochronology and geochronology to geologic problems of regional tectonic interest, particularly resolving the low-T events; understanding the deformation and metamorphic controls of crustal rheology.
Present studies include:  extensional tectonics of the Cyclades (Aegean Sea, Greece);  exhumation of HT & HP rocks, Bohemian massif (central Europe) & Grenville Province (Canada);  thermochronometry & thermal histories of the Canadian Cordillera and other petroleum systems;  Neoarchean to Paleoproterozoic tectonics of Laurentia, with implications for metallic ore deposits.
