John M. Cannon is a geology PhD candidate at the University of Houston currently working to integrate regional tectonics and geomorphology with thermochronology and geophysical datasets to evaluate crustal structure in Nepal, China, and the Gulf of Mexico. His field experience includes geologic field mapping in Alaska, Bhutan, Montana, New Mexico, and Texas, as well as collecting gravity, conductivity, and seismic data in southern New Mexico and west Texas.
Andy (Yiduo) Liu is a PhD candidate in geology. His main research interests include tectonic evolution of continental rift, passive margin and orogenic plateau, cross section restoration and balancing, surface and subsurface mapping, and seismic interpretation. He has extensive field mapping experience in West Texas, northern New Mexico, southwest Montana, and eastern Himalaya. Also, he is actively serving in AAPG, GSA, and many other academic organizations.
Peter Z Anderson a PhD student at the University of Houston is currently working on the geochemistry of Cretaceous igneous rocks along the Northern Gulf of Mexico margin, from Arkansas to Texas. He has studied a wide variety of geologic problems ranging from Pennsylvanian micropaleontology to igneous petrology. His field experience in mapping and identification spans much of the continent from Montana, South Dakota, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Maryland, West Virginia, North Carolina, and Utah. He has a passion for teaching all ages and has translated that into an outreach program for elementary schools in the Houston metropolitan area.
Monica Casso - geology major at the University of Houston, currently completing her last semester of her undergraduate program while working full-time at Shell Oil Company as a Geo-technician. Her past research was focused on the Kabul Basin and it’s major faults systems. Her field experience includes geologic field mapping in Texas and Montana.
