Research into the dynamics of the lithospheres and interiors of the terrestrial planets through experimental studies of the deformation of rocks at high-temperature and pressure conditions. Investigations of the role of chemical environment, including the role of dissolved water, on the kinetics of mineral reactions and on the deformation behavior of rocks.
