Personal profile

Research interests

Dr Sorcha Diskin's research falls under three main themes: Geochemistry and mineralogy; Quaternary climate changes; and Pedagogy in geology.

The first two strands are linked in the application of geochemical and mineralogical techniques to problems in sediment provenance, archaeology and landscape evolution in southern Africa.

The latter is a more recent development where collaborations are being developed to consider applications of CGI and related techniques to teaching in the earth sciences.

Dr Diskin is a Senior Fellow of Advance HE (SFHEA).
