The tectonic deformation processes of Dimitri Sokoutis

Body: 

Dimitrios Sokoutis is associate professor at the department of Earth Sciences. He is head of the Tectonic Laboratory.

Who are you and what do you do?
“My name is Dimitrios Sokoutis, I am associate professor at the University of Utrecht. My function is head of the Tectonic Laboratory. Furthermore  I am adjunct professor at the University of Oslo.

“In the tectonic modelling laboratory (TecLab) experimental as well as numerical computing tools are used to gain a better understanding of the large-scale tectonic deformation processes that occur in the Earth’s lithosphere, such as, for instance, the breakup of the crust or the formation of mountain ranges.”

Where is this work spot?
“The place is the Tectonic laboratory (TecLab) at Utrecht University”

What is interesting about your research?
“My research combines field studies with physical analogue modelling and builds bridges to the numerical modelling society fostering integration of these methods to study rheological aspects of lithosphere deformation and feedback relations with surface processes.”
