Biography

Tobi joined the UCD School of Earth Sciences in September 2011 after receiving his diploma in geology from the University of Mainz, Germany, earlier the year. Currently, he is perusing his PhD on the petrogenesis of Irish and Isle of Man granites, with a view to their geothermal potential. The project is supervised by Prof J.S. Daly and funded by the Earth and Natural Science Program through HEA-PRTLI. Tobi's main interests in geology are in igneous petrology, geochronology, isotope geochemistry, and the earth's evolution from dust particles to continents. He is keen on conducting field work in order to understand complex geological interrelationships. Apart from his studies, he enjoys various sports, music and wants to travel the world.
