Research Interests
Paul Fitzgerald is a geologist who applies thermochronology to constrain the tectonic history and landscape development of orogens, mountain belts and cratonic interiors. In Antarctica he works along the Transantarctic Mountains and in West Antarctica (Ellsworth Mountains), as well as using boulders sourced from under the East Antarctic Ice Sheet to constrain the tectonic evolution of cratonic East Antarctica.
