BIOGRAPHY: Mark is a postdoc working jointly between Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Harvard University. His work broadly encompasses observational geodynamics, working on problems related to the structure, deformation, and flow of the solid mantle. Processes that he studies include mantle convection, glacial isostatic adjustment, and lithospheric stability. Tools that he exploits include seismology, landscape evolution, geochemistry, sediment stratigraphy, and sea-level markers. Recently, he has started working on the genesis of sediment-hosted metal deposits and the development of sedimentary basins in thick lithosphere. You can find more information on his personal website:
