I’m excited to have the opportunity to co-chair a session at this fall’s Geological Society of America Annual Meeting in Seattle, Washington. The session, entitled “Challenges in Tectonics 4: Planetary Evolution in Four Dimensions: The New Global Tectonics”, is part of a broader initiative to define the grand challenges in the field of structural geology and tectonics. With help from co-chairs Dr. John Hole and Dr. Robert Moucha, this session will highlight cutting-edge research related to these themes.
Please consider submitting a proposal to this session! The abstract submission deadline is August 1, 2017.
Session description: We seek contributions to understanding Earth’s 4D evolution as a global tectonic system from transdisciplinary datasets and numerical models, with emphasis on frontier research areas (setting or process) and new or developing analytical techniques.

Check out my new paper, entitled “High-Pressure Tethyan Himalaya rocks along the India-Asia suture zone in southern Tibet”, which was recently published in Lithosphere. This research utilized regional-scale geologic mapping, structural analysis, metamorphic petrology (including pseudosection modeling), white mica Ar-Ar geochronology, and garnet Lu-Hf geochronology to constrain the structural geometry and P-T-t path of a newly recognized high-pressure metamorphic complex. This is the first such complex recognized along the Yarlung segment of the India-Asia suture, which is geographically central to the India-Asia collision. The full citation is below:
