Kate Alyse Waghorn

Postdoc., CAGE Institutt for geovitenskap
Engelsk flaggikon Samisk flaggikon

Her current research investigates the dynamics and history of fluid flow systems in the SW Barents Sea at the Leierdjupet Fault Complex and Fingerdjupet Basin. In particular, Kate works with geophysical data, in this case to identify and characterize fluid migration pathways and their relationship to tectonic stresses, tectonic stress changes and sedimentary processes. This project will integrate with geochemistry to provide an overview of the fluid processes from generation to seafloor. In addition, this project explores the role of stresses in sedimentary post-burial processes.

Kate received her PhD from UiT- Norges Arktisk Universitet in 2019 where she focused on the role of crustal scale faulting and tectonic stress in generating methane (abiotic) and in focusing fluid flow. She received her BSc (2012) and MSc (First Class Honours; 2014) in Geophysics from the University of Auckland, New Zealand

Kate is a post-doctoral researcher,
