Alexander Lusk


Alexander Lusk is a Geologist with the Geosciences and Environmental Change Science Center.

Alexander takes a multidisciplinary approach to reconstructing tectonic histories of active and ancient orogens as well as investigating lithospheric deformation within associated plate boundary-scale fault zones. He uses a combination of geologic mapping, structural and microstructural analysis, petrology, and geophysics to address these research topics from different perspectives and scales.
