Dr. Ali, Jason

Associate Professor

I am a geologist/geophysicist. Currently, main research interests are the India–Asia collision system, the Emeishan large igneous province of southwest China (its generation mechanism, and cause-effect link to the mid-Capitanian mass extinction), the Permian breakup of Gondwana, and Mesozoic–Cenozoic biogeography (Madagascar, India, West Indies, Galápagos).
