Biography

Peter is a sedimentologist and 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 in the Department of Geology at UCD. Peter was Editor-in-Chief of the journal Sedimentology from 2002-2006. He became a Senior Lecturer in 2006 and was appointed Tullow Professor of Petroleum Geoscience in 2013. He is currently Director of the MSc in Petroleum Geoscience and a Co-PI in the Irish Centre for Applied Geoscience (iCRAG).

Peter's main interests are in sediment generation and transport, Earth surface processes (particularly big-river systems and sediment gravity currents in the oceans), tectonics and sedimentation, and reservoir geology.  He has worked extensively in SE Spain, the North Sea, the Namurian of Co. Clare, and offshore Ireland.
