Research in the BRG focuses on the mechanics and kinematics of deformation at plate boundaries and spans a wide range of spatial and temporal scales.  We examine the geomorphic expression of young, active faults, and we also study more ancient remnants of deep-seated ductile shear zones exhumed from greater depth within Earth’s lithosphere.  BRG students apply a wide range of field, structural, geochronological and analytical methods.  To find out more about some of our active projects, check out our Research page. If you’re a prospective graduate student, please feel free to check out the Student Opportunities* page and don’t hesitate to contact Dr. Behr or anyone else in the BRG if you have questions about the graduate program at UT Austin.
