Our current and future research is aimed at examining displacement and distortion in convergent margins. We currently conducting research programs in the Tama Kosi area of east-central Nepal, the Kanchenjuga region of far east Nepal, the Hindu Kush of northwestern Pakistan, and the cratonic rocks of Northern Saskatchewan. These study areas provide the opportunity to examine well-exposed sections of exhumed middle to lower crust within the youthful Himalayan orogen and contrast that with similar rocks involved with ancient orogensis. This type of research enables us to identify and track common processes across different orogens through time.
Future research directions for our group include further investigating midcrustal transport in the Nepalese Himalaya and expanding that work into the southern Canadian Cordillera.
