Faults, fluids, earthquakes

RWilliams_Headshot_BW.jpg

I am an interdisciplinary geologist working at the intersection of fault/earthquake mechanics, structural geology, low-temperature geochemistry, and hydrogeology to understand the feedbacks between deformation and fluid movement in the earth’s crust. Although the majority of my research program is rooted in analysis of the rock record, I am also actively involved in research utilizing experimental and numerical/statistical approaches.

This website provides an archive of my research activities as recorded in my publications and CV. If you are having trouble obtaining copies of any of my papers, please do not hesitate to email me (rtwilliams-at-wisc.edu) and I will happily provide them.
