Research Summary

I develop and use thermochronometry (radiometric dating techniques that give cooling rates of rock by exhumation processes) to understand how the Earth's crust has evolved over different spatial and temporal scales. Much of this research is directed at the India-Asia collision zone.

I am also interested in using erosion records to investigate changes to the weatherability of the continental crust and associated feedbacks on climate that operate at million year timescales.
