My research interests include the evolution of plate boundaries, and how continents deform internally in response to plate boundary processes. These large-scale tectonic problems are addressed through collaborative research and focused, process-related studies. One of my main tools is the use radiometric dating of rocks and minerals to quantify absolute timing of events and rates of processes. My students and I integrate observations over a large range of scales from microstructures to regional geological and geophysical data sets, and employ a suite of methodologies to evaluate P-T-t-D histories and the 4D evolution of rocks and regions.
