RESEARCH AREAS

My research focuses on the structural geology, tectonics, geodynamics, and regional geology of convergent margins. I use geologic mapping, geophysics, geochronology, and petrography to understand

  • continental collision
  • subduction complex accretion and erosion processes
  • the impacts of subduction dynamics on continents and vice versa
  • the role of the mantle lithosphere in surface geology
  • along-strike variations in all of these.
