Some of my work has featured on various news sites and blogs, as well as on twitter.
In 2018, I will be giving two pubic lectures at the Geological Society in London (UK) on The Future of Plate Tectonics. Information about the talks, as well as ticket information, can be found here. The full public lecture schedule for the Geological Society is also available.
Writing for The Conversation
I wrote a piece discussing the theory of plate tectonics at 50 years old, touching on the role of previous plate boundaries, the origin of plate tectonics, the role of large chemical blobs at the core-mantle boundary… and what the future might hold.
This Conversation article was also re-published by the following websites:
The piece was also directly translated into Spanish – without the use of a translator. Philip Heron becomes Felipe Garza as a result.
Media attention for Nature Communications paper (Heron et al., 2016)
Our Nature Communication paper (June 2016) received global coverage, as shown below.

University of Toronto Arts and Science Magazine:
Widespread coverage on social media in Japan for work regarding mantle lithosphere and plate tectonics.
Work has been covered in India, also.
