Dr. Jane A. Gilotti

Professor of Structural Geology and Tectonics

121 Trowbridge Hall, Department of Geoscience,
The University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA 52242, USA.

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

Tel: 319-335-1097            Email: jane-gilotti at uiowa.edu

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.
