Lecturers, Professors and College Officers,

Neil is a lecturer in the Department of Earth Sciences, specialising in field-based sedimentary geology. He did his PhD at the University of Birmingham (2003), investigating the palaeoenvironments of Old Red Sandstone deposits in southern Norway. He subsequently worked on post-doctoral projects at Birmingham (2003-2007) and Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia (2007-2011). From 2011-2013 he was lecturer in sedimentary geology at Ghent University in Belgium. A prominent theme of his current research investigates the interactions between biotic and abiotic processes in sedimentary environments, including how the evolution of terrestrial vegetation impacted the landscapes and sedimentary record of Palaeozoic river systems.
