I’m Dr. Chris Rowan, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Geology at Kent State University. I specialise in using paleomagnetic and rock magnetic techniques to investigate a wide variety of geological problems. My research focus is understanding the deformation of the earth’s crust, on both global and regional scales, using a combination of field studies and analogue and numerical modelling.
