Research Interests

Jo is currently working as a postdoctoral fellow in the School of Geosciences investigating Indian Ocean plate reconstructions and continental break-up as part of the “Gondwanaland extension, breakup and continental margin evolution” a StatoilHydro funded research project, and is also a part of the EarthByte Group.
Jo's research interests are in the field of plate tectonics, geophysics and geology specifically looking at the formation and evolution of continental margins and oceanic crust. She completed her PhD from the University of Sydney in 2008 on the tectonic consequences of mid-ocean ridge formation, evolution and subduction.
