J. Taylor Perron
Associate Professor of Geology
Director of the Program in Geology, Geochemistry and Geobiology
Taylor Perron studies the physical processes that create landscapes, both on Earth and on other planets and moons. His group's efforts currently follow three themes: the development of uniform patterns in landscapes; the influence of climate on erosion and landscape evolution; and the role of fluids in shaping landscapes on Mars and Titan (Saturn's largest moon).
Perron holds an AB in Earth and Planetary Sciences and Archaeology from Harvard University and a PhD in Earth and Planetary Science from the University of California, Berkeley.
