Tectonic evolution of the high Arctic, in particular the area of the Kara and Barents shelves and the mountain belts which extend into the Eurasian high Arctic (Uralide and Caledonide orogens). Studies include
fieldwork in the Arctic (Severnaya Zemlya, Novaya Zemlya, Svalbard, Timan)
remote sensing studies and image interpretation
geochronology and detrital zircon geochronology (in cooperation with geochronologists at NORDSIM, Museum of Natural History, Stockholm, Sweden and the University of Alberta, Edmonton, Canada).
Geological and tectonic interpretation of the Novaya Zemlya Archipelago and its continuation through Vaigach Island into the Polar Urals.
Sediment provenance of the Neoproterozoic and Palaeozoic successions on the high Arctic islands and archipelagos: Severnaya Zemlya, Novaya Zemlya and Svalbard.
