Biography

 Peter is a graduate of Trinity College Dublin (1981). After a year working in mineral exploration in the Irish Midlands, he took up a University of Glasgow Overseas Scholarship and obtained a PhD in 1986 for work on Old Red Sandstone conglomerates in the NE Midland Valley of Scotland. Subsequently he was appointed as a Britoil Research Fellow (1985-1988) and then a Royal Society of Edinburgh/BP Research Fellow (1988-1991), both at the University of Glasgow. From 1991 to 1996, he worked as a consultant in the oil industry, before returning to Dublin in 1996 to take up a lectureship at UCD. Peter was Editor-in-Chief of the journal Sedimentology from 2002-2006.
