Hayley Allen successfully passed her PhD viva on the 27th of August. Her PhD, which was entitled “Stratigraphy and Structural Evolution of the Messinian Evaporite Complex in the Eastern Mediterranean”, was supervised by Al Fraser and Chris Jackson, and was examined by Christian Hubscher (University of Hamburg) and Gary Hampson (internal examiner). Huge congratulations Hayley! Hayley will begin work for Shell UK later this year and will be based in London.
Tom Phillips, Antje Lenhart, Han Claringbould, Oliver Duffy and Rebecca Bell attended and gave a series of oral presentations at a MultiRift Project meeting jointly hosted by Statoil Bergen and the University of Bergen. The two-day meeting was attended by collaborators from the Universities of Oslo, Bergen and Manchester, as well Statoil representatives from London, Bergen and Trondheim. Well done all!

The Basins Research Group (BRG) at Imperial College London focuses on the geodynamic, struc-tural, and stratigraphic evolution of sedimentary basins. This range of ac-tivities is centred around a multidisciplinary group of Earth Scientists who are committed to understand-ing the fundamental geo-logical processes opera-ting in evolving sediment-ary basins, and the application of this under-standing to determining the nature, origin and occurrence of natural resources (see Themes).
