http://earthscience.rice.edu/faculty/levander/index.html

My primary interests are studying the structure and tectonics of active plate margins, modern orogenic belts, and the structure of the upper mantle under continents using active and passive source seismic methods. I participate in expeditionary research projects, having worked on various projects in North and South America, Africa and Europe. I am currently involved in projects studying the Gibraltar Arc and Atlas Mountains (PICASSO), and the Mount Saint Helens imaging experiment (iMush). I am also determining the lithospheric structure of North America using data from USArray.
