Nick's currently active projects include studies of faults that develop in the oceanic crust, the dynamics of continental rifting, evolution of forearc basins and accretionary prisms, and the microstructure of gas-bearring shales. Underpinning all of this is an approach using granular mechanics, such as explored with physical experiments.
In his spare time he tries to go to sea to study active spreading centers in various corners of the globe. Nick leads a weekly graduate student seminar in the Fall on Marine Geology and Geophysics, and helps instruct a class in Marine Tectonics in the fall.
Nick currently works with graduate students Cassandra Browne, Rodrigo Lima, Anna Eliza Dias Svartman (with Luc Lavier), and Sebastian Ramirez (w/ Brian Horton and Sean Gulick), and postdoctoral scholar Jacqueline Reber, and has many UT, domestic, and international scientific collaborations.
