areas of expertise: volcanoes, volcanic eruptions, volcanic processes, meteorites, earth sciences
Tim Grove has been a professor of geology at MIT since July 1979.
His major interest is in understanding the chemical differentiation processes that have led to the formation of the crust and mantle of the Earth, Moon, Mars and meteorite parent bodies. He and his students do high-pressure, high-temperature melting experiments on planetary materials to place constraints on the thermal history, processes and deep structure in planetary interiors.
