​​​​​​​Welcome to the webpage of the University of Miami’s Geodynamics Group! We are located within the Department of Marine Geoscience within the Rosenstiel School of Marine, Atmospheric, and Earth Science and led by Adam F. Holt.

We strive to constrain the factors that govern the geologic evolution of plates, plate boundaries and the underlying mantle, and the rates and scales over which this deformation occurs. To achieve this, we integrate a variety of geodynamic modeling techniques with geological and geophysical observations. See the Research page for more details about some current and recent projects.

ANNOUNCEMENT: We have two Ph.D. studentships available for the upcoming academic year (Fall 2023). Do not hesitate to get in touch via email if you are interested!
