Emese M. Bordy is a senior lecturer based in the Department of Geological Sciences at University of Cape Town. Her main research interest lies within the Palaeozoic and Mesozoic deposits of southern Africa with a strong focus on the quantification of the climatic and tectonic signatures in sedimentation and biogeographic processes. She enjoys applying clastic sedimentology, continental ichnology, geochemistry, and stratigraphy to the high-resolution reconstruction of ancient continental ecosystems spanning the entire Phanerozoic record of South Africa. Her publication record reflects a passion not only for applying sedimentology, stratigraphy, and palaeontology to palaeoenvironmental reconstructions in fluvio-lacustrine to shallow marine settings, but also for integrating multidisciplinary observations at various scales to obtain robust palaeoecological snapshots of the geological past.
Robert Muir is a final year PhD student based in the Department of Geological Sciences at University of Cape Town. Robert is passionate about field geology and has research interests in the Mesozoic evolution of southern Gondwana, and the application of U-Pb geochronology to answer geological questions on stratigraphy, continental rifting, and palaeoenvironmental reconstructions.
