Basin formation, inversion, and sediment recycling through orogenic and supercontinent cycles

Syn-tectonic sedimentary deposits are a key record of orogenesis, providing insight into the complex interactions within and between terranes, and crustal growth vs. recycling through orogenic cycles. Using the Proterozoic crust of southwestern Laurentia as a field laboratory, my research is focused on identifying the continental-scale trends in sediment provenance that characterize long-lived accretionary orogenesis and crustal growth.
