Dr Jason Dortch

I have focused my research on the Quaternary geology, geomorphology, and tectonics of mountain belts at high latitude and high altitude. I am particularly concerned with quantifying the timing and rates of landscape evolution in these regions to understand the interplay between internal (tectonic) and external (surface) processes.
