Congratulations Dr. Drombosky
Tyler Drombosky successfully defended his thesis on April 4th, 2014. In his doctoral dissertation, Tyler developed a novel technique for modeling microstructure in deforming, partially molten rocks at the base of the Earth's tectonic plates. Tyler will move on to work at Luminal.

Currently we are carrying out research projects on developing new numerical methods in multiphase flow, studying melting atop the Earth's core-mantle boundary, developing a coupled thermal-orbital-structural evolution model for terrestrial planets and icy satellites, and studying reactive porous flow mechanisms in partially molten and fluid-bearing rocks.
Select one of the research topics in our groups to learn more about our research activities. Our research is funded by generous support from the National Science Foundation, NASA, American Chemical Society, and the University of Maryland.
