Dr. Dyck is a geologist who joined the faculty at UBC Okanagan in 2021. He completed his DPhil (PhD) at the University of Oxford in 2016 with a focus on the generation and migration of crustal melt in the Himalayan orogen. Following his doctoral studies, he held an 1851 Research Fellowship at the University of Cambridge and a faculty position at Simon Fraser University.

Research Interests & Projects
I am a petrologist with a broad interest in high-temperature crustal processes and the evolution of (exo)planetary lithosphere. Much of my group’s research combines field and electron-beam microscopy techniques with phase-equilibrium modelling, e.g.:
- Crustal metamorphism & deformation
- Reconciling the chemical (P-T) and stress histories of metamorphic rocks.
- Recystallization and equilibration in shear zones.
- Crustal melting
- Crystallization dynamics of silicic melt
- Planetary evolution
- Application of phase equilibria models to telluric lithosphere.
- Effect of core formation on surface composition and planetary habitability
- Formation of hydrous lithosphere on stagnant-lid worlds.
