RESEARCH INTERESTS

Professor Guevara studies plate tectonic processes at convergent plate boundaries (subduction, continental collision, mountain building) and the long-term evolution of Earth’s crust and mantle as recorded by metamorphic rocks. His research involves field work, petrography, geochemical analyses, and computational modelling in order to understand the drivers of heat and mass transfer in the lithosphere.
