Bio


My research primarily addresses the structural and thermal evolution of highly deformed continental crust. I am strongly field-oriented and particularly interested in the relationship between igneous & metamorphic processes and deformation from outcrop to regional scales, the influence of pluton emplacement on fault behavior, tectonic and metamorphic processes driving continental rifting and subduction, and processes that transport metal through the crust to form economic deposits.
