My doctoral research was focused on tectonics, geodynamics, and structural geology. My dissertation is titled Continental extension in orogenic belts: Modes of extension, origin of core complexes, and two-phase postorogenic extension. I defended my dissertation on Apr. 15, 2016, and graduated on May 21, 2016 with a Ph.D. degree in Geological Sciences.

Starting Sep. 19, 2016, I will be a research fellow at the University of Melbourne, Australia. I will work on dynamic processes in continental collision zones, coupling numerical modeling with synthesis of geological observations.
