Ladakh ("Little Tibet"), Indian Himalaya

The collision of India and Asia gave rise to the Himalaya mountain range. Deep below, rocks reach high enough temperatures to deform; I traveled to the Himalaya to study these rocks that heated to the point of melting to better understand how mountain ranges form and evolve. See more details on my research page.
