Information for Graduate Applicants

My research is an interdisciplinary combination of field and laboratory work. Potential applicants should have a strong background in soft-rock geology, and some combination of classes in sedimentology, stratigraphy, geomorphology, geochemistry, and mineralogy. Send me an email (doterry[at] if you would like to discuss research opportunities.

I support my graduate students with a combination of teaching and research assistantships. You can apply for our graduate program here.
