Hi, Iā€™m Sean

I am a geologist broadly interested in the relationship between lithospheric deformation and metamorphic processes. My research uses the mineral assemblages preserved in rocks to reconstruct the pressure, temperature, and deformation history of a region to ultimately test hypothesis of how mountain belts form and evolve. I use a field based and analytical approach combining a variety of research tools including structural mapping, metamorphic petrology, geochronology, geochemistry, and thermodynamic modeling.

If you want to keep up with everything we are working on, follow me on Twitter and have a look at our projects on Github. The best way to reach me is by email.
