GRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANT
Joshua’s research focuses on deciphering the break-up history of East India and East Antarctica. The project involves developing a holistic plate model for the breakup of East Gondwana and the subsequent seafloor spreading in the Mesozoic Indian Ocean. Then, coupling recent geophysical data from the margins with our plate model, Joshua can develop a conceptualized tectonic model for the breakup of India and Antarctica. Via 3D numerical modeling he will test the plausibility of the team’s tectonic model.
