Diddordebau Ymchwil

Mae’r prif faes ymchwil yn canolbwyntio ar hanes creigiau igneaidd Caledonaidd Cymru a meysydd cysylltiedig, yn ogystal â’u metamorffedd gradd isel. Mae gwaith mwy diweddar wedi canolbwyntio ar ymestyn petroleg a geocemeg cerrig igneaidd wedi’u newid o Sir Benfro i ailarchwilio tarddiad cerrig glas Côr y Cewri.

Allweddeiriau

Mwynoleg, petroleg, geocemeg, cerrig igneaidd, metamorffedd gradd isel, cerrig glas, Côr y Cewri.
