Summary

Dr Eddie Dempsey is a lecturer in Structural Geology at the University of Hull in the UK. Eddie uses evidence of deformation in the Earths crust such as faults, folds and fractures to reconstruct tectonic environments and changes to regional stress fields through time. Eddie also uses U-Pb and Re-Os isotope geochronology to accurately establish the timing of events such as fault zone development and ancient earthquakes.
