Ian Watkinson (full research profile)

Teaching and Research Fellow



Dr Ian Watkinson is a structural geologist currently working as a teaching and research fellow at Royal Holloway University. Previously he worked on a post-doctoral project investigating active faults of eastern Indonesia with the SE Asia Research Group, an industry-funded consortium at Royal Holloway University. His research interests include strike-slip shear zones, particularly those around the eastern margin of India (Watkinson et al., 2008), active faults (Watkinson et al., 2011a), deformation and exhumation of metamorphic terranes (Watkinson, 2011), Ar-Ar thermochronology (Watkinson et al. 2011b) and the tectonic evolution of SE Asia (Ridd and Watkinson, In Press). His research is mainly field-based, and has included fieldwork focused on structural geology in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Myanmar, Vietnam, India and the USA. He has recently been awarded the Timothy Jefferson Field Research Fund, to support fieldwork in Indonesia. He is currently studying the palaeoseismology of the Sagaing Fault, Myanmar.
