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 the Northern Canadian Cordillera (NWT and Yukon) and in the Southern Canadian Cordillera.

May 2022 - we are looking for a highly motivated PhD student that will study Porphyry deposits in BC. More information can be found here.
April 2022 - Congratulations to Mauricio Barcelos Haag
(University of Toronto) who is this year's winner of the Graduate Student Research Award. We had many strong contributions this year and the decision was not easy. You can learn more about Mounricio's research project here.
April 2022 - I am proud to have been part of the publication of two manuscripts in GSA Bulletin on (U-Th)/He chronology lead by Becky Flowers. Part 1 is all about data, uncertainties and reporting, Part 2 is all about the evaluation, integration and interpretation of (U-Th)/He data.
April 2022 - I am happy to welcome our new lab manager Julia Drummond (nee Pickering) to our group. Over the next weeks she will be working together with Will Matthews, who is soon moving on to new adventures.
Jan 2022 - Tobias Stephan published his new program for stress analyses, check out PlateTectonicStressR
