    Title: Dr.

    Participating in the Chancellor’s Undergraduate Research Awards program: Yes

    Research Interest:
    Overall, my work focuses on understanding the evolution of the lithosphere at convergent margins by constraining the timescales and magnitudes of heat and mass transfer. For this, I apply different tools/approaches in petrology such as thermodynamic modeling, petrochronology, mineralogy and high-temperature geochemistry in tandem with fieldwork. Recent projects center on studying how metamorphism controls the densification, redox, and hydration state of the subducting lithosphere. Other projects focus on studying exhumed portions of metamorphosed lithosphere (field work in Guatemala, Baja California, central-south Mexico, southwestern USA) to evaluate its tectonothermal evolution through time

    Minimum time commitment in hours per week: TBD

    Qualifications of a Student:
