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 (Alberta and BC), and along the eastern margin of North America.
