Dr. Marli Miller, University of Oregon

Author of the New Edition of Roadside Geology of Oregon (2014)

Dr. Miller's research emphasizes the use of small-scale structures to reconstruct the structural and kinematic histories of high strain zones. She is especially interested in the transition from brittle to ductile behavior in these zones at meso- to microscopic scales. Much of Marli's work is in Death Valley, California where she is also involved with tectonic interpretations.
