Prof. Wheeler is a marine geologist contributing to teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate levels in the areas of sedimentology, geology and marine science.

Prof. Wheeler is Professor of Geology/Head of Geology, Vice Head of the School of Biological, Earth & Environmental Sciences, PI for Marine Research at the Environmental Research Institute and a member of the Royal Irish Academy Geosciences & Geographical Sciences Committee.

Research activities include marine geology with an emphasis on benthic boundary layer sedimentary processes, offshore Quaternary geology and seabed mapping (SSS, MBES, ROVs). Prof. Wheeler has a special focus on the geology of deep-water coral carbonate mounds and continental margins (slides, canyons, contourites) as well as shelf-sea sediment transport processes and offshore banks (Irish Sea). Prof. Wheeler has expertise in geophysical processing and core analysis (especially PSA)  and collaborates with biologists (habitat mapping), GIS experts, offshore renewable energy providers and archaeologists (shipwrecks). 

Prof. Wheeler has strong links to the ERI and CMRC in UCC.
