My major research interest is on understanding the processes that control the tectonic evolution of ancient collisional mountain belts. These regions provide windows into the middle and lower crust and record information about their behavior during continental collision. This type of work requires an integration of field, petrographic, and laboratory expertise, the latter including clean laboratory operations and mass spectrometric analyses.
I received my Ph.D. in Geology from the California Institute of Technology in 1979. I have been a professor at Brown University since 1978, working with the Geophysics/Minerology/Petroloy (GMP) group. My major research focuses on understanding the processes that control the tectonic evolution of ancient collisional mountain belts.
