My name is Brian, and I am currently a Research Fellow at the University of Aberdeen, interested in quantitatively characterising and analysing 3D geometry and architecture from 3D digital outcrop models. The data gleamed from these models are used primarily in subsurface characterisation of reservoirs, but also serve as input into how depositional and geological processes have affected these rocks through geologic time.

Prior to arriving at Aberdeen I completed my PhD at the University of Manchester, supervised by David Hodgetts, where my research focused on developing methods to quantitatively characterise 3D digital outcrop models in northern Spain and eastern Kentucky, USA. From this research I became interested in applying these methods to a wide array of sedimentological rocks, including my current work in sandstone intrusions.

Alternatively, I collaborate with researchers in the arts and sciences, primarily with Roger Malina of the ArtSciLab at the University of Texas at Dallas.
