The research in the crustal mechanics and lithospheric dynamics (CMLD) group is broadly concerned with the deformation of the crust and uppermost mantle: earthquake mechanics, dynamics of the earthquake cycle & the lithosphere. There are currently opportunities for undergraduate students in scientific computing and mathematical analysis. Our group is part of the Geophysics Group at UM and we have close collaborations with the Tectonics and Structural Geology group.
