Nathan Niemi's research interests are in continental deformation, with an emphasis on actively deforming tectonic systems. Detailed field mapping, thermochronology, neotectonic studies, and GPS geodesy are some of the methods he applies to compare how crustal deformation is accommodated during orogenesis over a wide range of timescales, from decades to tens of millions of years.
Research projects include:
Paleotopography and paleogeography of the Basin and Range Neotectonics of the Greater Caucasus and evolution of the Arabia-Eurasia plate boundary Tectonic evolution of northern Tibet and timing of uplift of the Tibetan Plateau.
