Whitney Behr, assistant professor in the Department of Geological Sciences at The University of Texas at Austin's Jackson School of Geosciences, will give a talk titled "Constraints from Exhumed Rocks on the Strength and Rheology of Continents" at 11 a.m. on Thursday, 21 January 2016, in the Greenewalt Lecture Hall as part of DTM's Weekly Seminar Series.

Behr received her Ph.D. in structural geology and active tectonics from the University of Southern California in 2011. Her research focuses on the mechanics and kinematics of continental deformation at plate boundaries and spans a wide range of spatial and temporal scales.

Coffee, tea, and a continental breakfast will be served before the lecture at 10:30 a.m.
