|Hugh completed his Phd on 'The origin and nature of Cenozoic faulting in north-east Ireland' at the end of 2013. We have continued to collaborate with Hugh on related papers since he moved to Midland Valley immediatley after his PhD.|
Arzu worked within our group on an SFI funded project involving the analysis and 3D numerical modelling of joints from 2008 to 2010. We continue to collaborate with Arzu as we generate publications arising from this research. Arzu is a post-doctoral researcher at University of Bremen.

Wayne is a former member of our group, from 1997 to 2002, who worked on a range of projects involving the analysis of fault geometry
and growth from 3-D seismic data and the analysis of faults and fault zones from outcrop and coalmine data. Wayne is now Principal Structural
Geologist with Woodside Energy, Perth. We continue to collaborate with Wayne on group-related related research and publications.
A former member of our group, from 1998 to 2005, Chris is a Senior Structural Geologist with SRK Consulting (Cardiff), an international consulting practise specialising in services to the mining industry. Chris worked on a variety of projects mainly related to the structure and evolution of mineral deposits, and Irish Zn-Pb deposits in particular, and we continue to collaborate with Chris on related research and publications.
|Giovanni joined FAG as a post-doctoral researcher in June 2015 working mainly on the analysis of fault zones from outcrop and seismic data in the context of our multi-company funded QUAFF2 project. He returned to Italy at the end of the project in December 2018, and we continue to collaborate on papers emanating from the research.|
Marc conducted a PhD within our group between 2006 and 2010 on the structure and tectonics of the Taranaki
Basin, New Zealand. Having been a structural geologist in Total Geoscience Research Centre, Aberdeen, until 2013, he joined
RWE Dea as Senior Geoscientist. We continue to collaborate with him on fault-related research,
including the publication of papers arising from his PhD studies.
Andy joined our group
in 1991 when we were based in the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences at University of Liverpool.
He soon became our computing guru, working on a variety of projects related to 3-D geological modelling
and modelling the impact of faults on fluid flow. When the group relocated to Dublin in 2000, Andy remained
in Liverpool but continued to work on projects with the group, in particular on the development of TransGen;
software written by Andy which applies our methods for including single and two-phase fault rock properties,
and sub-resolution fault zone structure, in flow simulation models. Andy continues to collaborate with us as
an independent consultant.

|Eoghan was a member of our group from 2007 until late 2012 working on the analysis and discrete element modelling of caldera subsidence and related faulting. Since he started a postion as Research Scientist at GFZ Potsdam, we have continued to collaborate on a selection of projects and papers.|
A former member of our group, from 1998 to 2001, Jonny is now a Senior Lecturer at Durham University and a member of the
Reactivation Research Group. Jonny performed much of our distinct element modelling work on a project on fault relays and
continues to collaborate with the group on related research and publications.
|Saiful joined FAG in 2011 on an ExxonMobil-funded PhD project on flow-based geometrical upscaling for fault zone structure. Upon completion of his PhD in 2015, he took on a research position in the College of Engineering, Dhofar University, Oman, and we continue to undertake collaborative research of fault-related aspects of flow simulation modelling.|
A former member of our group from 2006 to 2008, Vasso is now a research Scientist at GFZ Potsdam.
We continue to work with Vasso on a variety of research topics mainly
related to earthquake behaviour and fault growth, particularly for fault systems in New Zealand.
A former member of our group from 1993 to 1995, Andy was based at GNS Science in Wellington until 2014, but recently accepted a Professorship
at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch. Andy is a UCD Adjunct Associate Professor, visiting our group on a regular basis and
continuing to conduct collaborative research with the group on the geometry and growth of faults.
We have had a number of formal projects with Andy on a range of issues, from faults within turbidites of the Taranaki Basin,
through to the growth and earthquake behaviour of active faults in the Taupo Volcanic Zone. Andy is a partner on two of our projects,
one involving the analysis and modelling of faults from outcrop (Quaff2) and the other involving the structural evolution of the South
|Mats has been working with the group since he began his PhD with us in 2000. We have had numerous projects with him, both when he was at UCD and since he moved to University of Vienna in 2010. He continues to collaborate on our projects and publications on many aspects of our work, in particular fault zones and discrete element modelling.|
Mark has collaborated with our group over the past few years on our studies of faults and deep water turbidites mainly in the
context of our FIFT project which was completed in mid-2005; Mark performed much of the sedimentological studies of the project.
Currently based at the University of Wyoming, we continue to collaborate with Mark on FIFT-related publications.
|Rob completed a PhD within our group between 2003 and 2007 on the Cenozoic faulting of onshore and offshore West of Ireland. He is a structural geologist with Statoil in Trondheim, and we continue to collaborate with him on fault-related research, including the publication of papers arising from his PhD studies.|
