Alexander Peace

I am a Postdoc in Geophysics at Memorial University of Newfoundland in St. John's, NL, Canada.

My research primarily focuses on continental breakup and the evolution of continental passive margins, including the processes that led to continental breakup and subsequent passive margin formation. Particular areas of interest include: rift-related magmatism, structural inheritance and mantle dynamics. Geographically, my work to date has principally focused on the continental margins of the North Atlantic and surrounding regions including; Newfoundland, West Greenland, Jan Mayen, Labrador and the UK/Irish margin.
