I am a structural geologist based in the UK. I did a Masters on the Fracture Mechanics of quartz and a PhD on the formation of shear zones. I continued doing research, particularly on the Devonian basins of Norway and Scotland, until my funding ran out. I started doing consulting work while waiting for that elusive permanent university post to come along. 25 years later I'm still consulting, but I have given up waiting. I've worked mainly on nuclear waste disposal problems and for the oil industry, so no environmental issues at all.

I started contributing to Wikipedia in July 2006, concentrating on adding content to structural geology, although more recently I've also worked on earthquake articles and other general geology/geophysics pages.
