Tectonics, Thermochronology & Geochronology

 

Department of Geological Sciences

University of Colorado, Boulder

 

We focus on a variety of problems in continental tectonics, landscape evolution, and mantle dynamics, using a combination of geo- and thermochronology, field observation, and petrological tools. We are particularly interested in how deeper crustal and mantle processes are linked with uplift and unroofing histories at the surface of the Earth.
