J. Taylor Perron
Professor of Earth, Atmospheric & Planetary Sciences
Taylor Perron studies the physical processes that create landscapes on Earth and other planets. His group's efforts currently follow four themes: the formation and evolution of river networks; the influence of climate on erosion and landscapes; landscapes and the human past; and 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.
