Nick Mortimer

PhD; Bsc (Hons); FRSNZ

Nick uses the age, structure, and mineral and chemical composition of rocks to solve tectonic and geological problems. He applies his expertise in petrology, geochemistry and structural geology to pursue research interests in the onland and offshore regional geology and tectonics of New Zealand, and beyond.

In the GNG Programme, Nick brings vast experience in South Island metamorphic petrology to identify and characterise properties of TVZ  rocks under supercritical conditions.
