My interest in applications of strontium isotope analysis to human migration and animal herding studies, has resulted in a large scale isotopic survey of 3rd Millennium BC Saxon-Anhalt in Germany; the positive identification of Princess Eadgyth's remains in Magdeburg cathedral; and a genetic and isotopic study of a late Neolithic nuclear family.I have worked on the development of laser ablation multi-collector mass spectrometry methods that can now be successfully employed to measure intra-tooth variation of strontium isotopes at high spatial resolution, and which are being used to reconstruct herding practices at Neolithic Swiss lake villages.

Publication of numerous papers in the international literature, often derived from the findings of its contract research, are also an important function of the Unit’s staff.
The gathering pace of decommissioning the UK’s early generation nuclear reactors and associated facilities provides significant opportunities for laboratories with suitable expertise.
Since 1996, seven industrially-funded, nuclear-related Ph D projects have been completed and the qualified individuals have remained in the Unit or found work in the nuclear sector.
GAU also provides expertise in radiochronological dating (lake and estuarine sediments), geochemical analysis and X-radiography to academia and other organisations in the petroleum, marine and geotechnical sectors.
From world-class research and collaboration with industry to innovative programmes designed to improve access for all students to higher education.
The integration of lasers into optical fibres by pioneering research at the University of Southampton has led to the creation of a new business sector in fibre laser technology and manufacturing, improving production and manufacturing processes for a huge range of industries.
My current research focuses on uranium-series disequilibrium dating and the chronology of modern human evolution, and is providing insights into the timing of the appearance of the earliest anatomically modern humans in Africa, and the disappearance of the last Neanderthals in Iberia.
In parallel, my work on dating of Palaeolithic cave art has shown the oldest dated cave painting to be in Iberia, at least as old as the arrival of modern humans to the region and has significant implications for the evolution of symbolic behaviour.
