Profile picture of Carolyn Tewksbury-Christle

Starting Fall 2021, I’ll be joining the faculty in the Geosciences Department at Fort Lewis College, Durango, CO and teaching introductory geology, field methods, and structural geology.

My current research focuses on using the rock record to better understand modern subduction zones. I use a combination of structural geology, geochronology, geochemistry, and geophysical analysis to better understand the tectonic history of subduction-related rocks in the Klamath Mountains in northern California and southern Oregon. I’m a jack-of-all-trades with experience in geology, geophysics, physics, and education research, so I’m always looking to branching out and find new and exciting questions to answer.
