Stephen Vincent received his BSc (Hons) from Durham University in 1988 and PhD from Liverpool University in 1993. His PhD focused on the sedimentology, stratigraphy and provenance of syn-orogenic palaeovalley deposits within the Spanish Pyrenees, supervised by the late Prof. Trevor Elliott.
He joined CASP in 1993 and has subsequently worked on aspects of clastic sedimentology, regional geology and geodynamics, basin analysis, sediment routing and provenance, thermochronology, and organic geochemistry in China, Siberia, West Africa, Albania, Azerbaijan, Ukraine, Moldova, Romania, the Caucasus, Pontides and Balkans.
Steve has been Black Sea Project leader since 1999 and has published extensively on the geology of the region. He became Chief geologist in 2019. He also co-ordinates CASP’s work in the Caspian region.
