Research Overview

  • Understanding lithospheric deformation and magmatism during tectonic processes throughout Earth’s history. My research of first-order tectonics problems integrates field-based geological mapping, GPS/GNSS surveying, strain analysis, geochronology, thermochronology, thermobarometry, geochemistry, and analysis of geodetic data and satellite/aerial imagery.
