My research focus is on the evolution of mountain belts over a range of length scale from hundreds to tens of kilometers. I am especially interested in understanding the evolution of landscapes that result from the interaction of tectonic forces and surface processes.
The main methods I am using are low-temperature dating techniques such as fission-track analysis and U-Th/He dating applied to bedrock and sediments to quantify the thermal history of Earth's upper crust. These data are combined with other geo- and thermochronology data, structural measurements, geomorphology, sedimentology, geophysical data, and numerical modeling. I have been working in research projects located in India, central China, Myanmar, Argentina, western US, Alaska and the Canadian Cordillera. Currently I have active research projects in southeast Alaska, western Yukon and southern Alaska.
2017 - today Assistant Professor, University of Calgary
July 2019 - We published our source-to-sink analysis of borehole sediment from the Gulf of Alaska in Tectonics.
June 2019 - we got back our first fission track irradiation, credit to Kelley for the enormous job!
June 2019 - The Geo-andThermochronoloy Reserach Group is enjoying the summer with picnicking on the Bow River and playing music.
Apr 2019 - We are hosting a special session on "Quantifying Timing and Rates of Geologic Processes - (SS-GH20)" at the GAC-MAC 2019 meeting in Quebec City. Will Matthews and I are also hosting a 1-day post conference short course on: Rates and Dates: Geo-and Thermochronology Methods and Application. Hope to see you in Quebec!
Apr 2019 - congratulations to Ryan Grieco, who was awarded the "Best Poster Presentation" for his undergrduate thesis presentation on "Low-temperature thermochronology reveals exhumation pattern across the central Rocky Mountain Trench"
Mar 2019 - congratulations to Kade Damant, who received a PURE award for conducting research in our group over this summer
Feb 2019 - our reconnaissance data from the Mackenzie Mountains was just published in Terra Nova.
