Fluid-rock interaction during ductile deformationDeformation of quartz in mylonitesPseudotachylytesDuctile shear zones


I am currently working on: (i) the process of nucleation and growth of ductile shear zones in isotropic rocks (e.g. granitoids); (ii) the association of pseudotachylytes (friction-induced melts along faults) and synkinematic mylonites a proxy of seismic processes at depth.
