Louise H. Kellogg

Professor and Department Chair; Director, Computational Infrastructure for Geodynamics
Chancellor's Award for Diversity, University of California, Davis, 2005 
Ph.D., Cornell (1988)
Geophysics; Planetary ScienceStructural Geology and Tectonics; Earth-Surface Processes

Dynamics of the solid Earth, focusing on two areas: understanding how convection in the Earth's mantle operates and drives geologic processes, and understanding the forces causing earthquakes and landscape change. Current projects include: computer modeling of the thermal and chemical evolution of the Earth; modeling the dynamics of mixing in the Earth's mantle; modeling and observing deformation in the crust associated with earthquakes. Other research interests include scientific visualization to explore the Earth's surface and interior.
