Graduate students

Nick RichardNick Richard is working jointly in the DRG and the UNITE group with Dr. Lynne Elkins. He has an MS from New Mexico, and is making good progress on his PhD. He has carried out a field season in Vietnam in early 2020. Nick is looking at the development of block breakdown and faulting in Vietnam, using field measurements of faults, slickenlines and age relationships. He further studies the age and evolution of the lithosphere through geochemical analyses, partially supported by an NSF grant. Nick is also interested in the overall geodynamic evolution of Indochina.


Nutaila Al Hadidi has just joined the DRG, taking on the fracture topology work in thin section that follows on from Fahad's work. Watch this space!
