Role functions

Details for: Chris Hawkesworth

Chris Hawkesworth applies isotopic systems to unravelling how and when the continental crust was generated and the links between geochemistry and tectonics. He has contributed to our understanding of the generation of subduction-related magmas, continental flood basalts, timescales through U-series isotopes, the development of base metal deposits, and environmental changes throughout time. He has used zircons as an archive of the evolution of the continental crust, and investigated how its composition has changed from the Hadean to the present. He is interested in constraining rates of natural processes, and placing regional studies in a global context. Chris is a graduate of Trinity College Dublin, and obtained his D.Phil at Oxford working with Ron Oxburgh in the Tauern Window of the Eastern Alps. He set up an isotope research group at the Open University before moving to Bristol in 2000. He was Deputy Principal at the University of St Andrews from 2009 to 2014, and he has served as President of the EAG and as a Director of the Geochemical Society. Chris is an elected Fellow of a number of societies including the Royal Society and the Royal Society of Edinburgh, and holds Emeritus positions at the Universities of Bristol and St Andrews.
