My research in Structural Geology and Tectonics involves studying the rates, timing, mechanics, and styles of deformation of the Earth’s lithosphere in response to the motion of its tectonic plates. Doing so requires integrating several geoscience disciplines such as field studies and mapping, qualitative and quantitative methods of structural analysis, basin analysis, microscopy, geo- and thermochronology, geodetics, remote sensing, and numerical modeling.
