George B Fisher
Research Collaborator, Department of Geological Sciences, Jackson School of Geosciences


I am fundamentally interested in how landscapes evolve in a wide range of environments and across broad temporal scales. In order to constrain both processes and rates I employ a wide range of techniques both in the field and in the lab and currently work in the Himalaya, the Andes, and western North America.
