Biography

Dr John Conneally is a Post-Doctoral Researcher within the 3-D Ireland platform at iCRAG. John Completed a PhD on the kinematics of segment boundaries on normal faults, with the Fault Analysis Group in UCD in 2014. Following completion of his PhD John worked as a geologist in the mining industry in Ireland. In 2017 John joined iCRAG to work on the 3-D modelling of the Irish onshore this project will use a range of geological and geophysical datasets to increase our understanding of the Irish onshore geology and the associated mineral deposits.

Research

Research Interests

My research is primarily on the kinematics of faults. This work is best applied in areas of good data such as those around mineral deposits and oil fields. Analysis of the kinematic data available provides good constraints on the development of the faults, but may also provide insights into the basin scale processes operating at the time of fault movements.

My current work involves the mapping of the 3D structure of the Irish Midlands, a globally important ore field. Detailed mapping of the geology in this area will allow the details of the basin development to be determined, will place some constraints on the development of the ore deposits in this area and will assist in future exploration targeting in this province.
