Curriculum Vitae: Short (HTML) / Full (PDF)

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.
