The Marie Curie fellowship gave me a real chance to learn new scientific techniques, in my case, running fluid dynamic experiments. The benefits of the grant are simply that I am now working in a new country with new people and new challenges.

John is working on the formation of cratonic basins and how it relates directly to the wider question of long-term stability of continental platforms. Marie Curie Actions fund all topics of research, from economics to mathematics and plate tectonics. This approach means that all fields are covered by the most innovative and excellent brains in Europe and beyond.
