Dipl.-Geol., Goethe University Frankfurt/M, Germany

Supervisors: Dr. Duncan McIlroy

Ph.D. Thesis Title: The role of physical and biogenic sea-bed reworking as a prime modifier of late diagenetic processes in shallow-marine mudstones. I am interested to develop an understanding on how non-steady diagenesis controls organic matter quality in ancient type examples of mud-dominated, high-energy systems such as muddy coastlines, deltas, and fine-grained turbidites in the UK (Yorkshire Coast), Canada (eastern Newfoundland) and Mexico (Baja California).

M.Sc. Thesis Title: 3D Morphology of Diplocraterion and Ophiomorpha and Their Impact on Reservoir Properties

Mary is a geology Master’s student who started researching in September 2010. Her research is focused on 3D morphological reconstructions of Ophiomorpha and Diplocraterion to enhance characterisation and understanding of these very common trace fossils in siliciclastic hydrocarbon reservoirs.

Dr. Nicola Tonkin
B.Sc., M.Sc., University of Aukland

Supervisor: Dr. Duncan McIlroy

Ph.D. Thesis Title: Lateral variability of ichnofabric in shallow marine successions: constraining the limitations of the ichnofabric method.

Nikki Tonkin is a specialist in shallow marine ichnology. Nikki has been working on ichnofabric analysis and reservoir quality in shallow marine sandstones, with particular reference to the influence of ecological patchiness. Nikki's studies have taken her to field sites in Argentina, Utah, and New Zealand. Her current focus is on the taphonomy of the crustacean burrow Thalassinoides burrows in shallow marine sandstones.

Dr. Christopher Phillips

B.A., M.Esc. University of Oxford


Supervisor: Dr. Duncan McIlroy

Ph.D. Thesis Title: Contributions to the ichnology of deep marine turbiditic successions


Chris's work addresses the ichnology of the Gres D'Annot Formation of the French Alps, includes ichnofabric analysis of deep marine sediments from the Nova Scotian slope. In addition, Chris studied ichnofabric production by the thalassinid shrimp Neotrypea californiensis as an analogue to the producers of deep marine Ophiomorpha in the Gres D'Annot Formation- the Ophiomorpha rudis ichnosubfacies.
