Nicole Gasparini’s research group is looking for students with a strong quantitative background who are interested in surface water hydrology, landscape evolution and tectonic geomorphology. Current projects include exploring tectonic geomorphology in the Baton Rouge Fault Zone, Louisiana, and investigating the effects of precipitation gradients on vegetation, runoff, and erosion on the Big Island, Hawaii.
Students interested in fault evolution and tectonic geomorphology are encouraged to contact Nancye Dawers.
We also have a productive Environmental Biogeochemistry Group, under the guidance of Professor Karen Johannesson, doing active research with trace element speciation in natural waters.
For information on the Quaternary Group, contact Torbjörn Törnqvist.
For students interested in stratigraphy and sediment transport, contact Kyle Straub.
We have research opportunities in sedimentology, stratigraphy, marine geology, paleoclimatology, neotectonics, isotope geochemistry, and environmental geochemistry. There are also opportunities in structural geology, paleontology, petrology, and volcanology.
Applicants need to provide a clear statement of research interests and career goals. More information about the department can be obtained via this website and from the graduate advisor, Dr. Nancye Dawers - email@example.com
