Richard is a Senior Lecturer in Sedimentology and Tectonics, and Co-Director of the Institute of Applied Geoscience. His core research interests focus on achieving an holistic understanding of sedimentary processes and sedimentary architecture within active continental rifts and across the rift to continental margin transition. Current projects include research in the present Gulf of Corinth rift and the Red Sea rift. Outcomes are applied to improving predictions of potential hydrocarbon distributions and reservoir quality in equivalent subsurface settings.
