Perez, Nicholas individual record
Assistant Professor

My research focuses on basin evolution and deformation along active margins, the role of structural inheritance on deformation and subsidence patterns, tectonic influences on sedimentology, stratigraphy, and basin architecture, continent-scale sediment routing, and tectonic-climate interactions.
