About Richard G Roberts

I have been at the forefront of pioneering research in geochronology for the past 2 decades, and lead the optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dating laboratory in the School of Earth & Environmental Sciences at the University of Wollongong. Accurate dating of key events in Earth’s history is fundamental to provide the historical framework for a wide variety of applications in the geological, biological and archaeological sciences. OSL dating has created new opportunities to investigate human interactions with their environments during the past million years, and single-grain OSL techniques can provide critical information on the stratigraphic integrity of archaeological sites. My research interests include improvements to single-grain OSL techniques and development of statistical models to more reliably date natural and archaeological deposits.
