Professor of Structural Geology and Tectonics

Office: 267A Trowbridge Hall Fax: 319-335-1821

Fall 2013 Office Hours: Tues and Wed 2:00-3:30 and by appointment.
My main research interests are: the geodynamics and tectonics of collisional orogens, especially the Caledonian-Appalachian mountain belt; high-pressure/ultrahigh-pressure metamorphism and subsequent exhumation of overthickened crust; and deformation mechanisms, material properties and rheology of rocks discerned from studying shear zones.
I have opportunities available for motivated graduate students (M.S. and Ph.D.) and undergraduate students to participate in a variety of research projects, with or without a field component. Details of some current research projects can be found on my Research page. If you are interested in doing a research project with me in structural geology or metamorphic petrology within a bigger tectonic framework, please send me an e-mail and we can discuss possibilities.
