My Ph.D. work (on eclogites in the Eastern Alps) was carried out at Oxford between 1974 and 1977, after which I spent two years at the Department of Geophysical Sciences, University of Chicago, doing high-pressure experiments with Professor R.C. Newton. I joined what used to be the Department of Mineralogy and Petrology in 1979, and have continued to work on high-pressure metamorphism and the thermodynamics of minerals as a function of temperature, pressure and composition in the Department of Earth Sciences since its inauguration in 1980.
