Stewart Fishwick is a Senior Lecturer in Geophysics at the University of Leicester.  He has a BSc in Geophysics from the University of Edinburgh (2000) and a PhD in Seismology from the Research School of Earth Sciences, Australian National University, Canberra (2005).  Before taking up a lectureship at Leicester, he was briefly a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at the University of Cambridge.

His primary research, beginning during his PhD, has focussed on using seismic surface waves to provide information on the structure of the Earth’s upper mantle.  Generally working at the continental scale, much of his work has looked at Australia and Africa.  He has particular interest in the interpretation of tomographic images, both in a qualitative and quantitative approach, and how the resulting velocity models can be related to other geophysical and geological observations.  He has been invited to give talks on a diverse range of topics related to the upper mantle including: mantle velocities beneath passive margins, the East African Rift System, and the structure of Precambrian lithosphere.
