Dr. Brian Romans
I am a sedimentary geologist interested in reconstructing tectonic evolution, climate change, and fundamental sedimentary processes from the stratigraphic record. Although my focus is in the preserved sedimentary record, I am interested in the coupling of erosional landscapes (where sediment is produced) with depositional segments to gain a comprehensive understanding of Earth surface response to environmental change from centennial to multi-million-year timescales.
