Ph.D. 2002, Geology, University of California - Santa Barbara
Professional interests are in sediment transport processes and landscape evolution.
Projects include investigating landslides and debris flows in the Himalayas and California;
examining the role of fire and vegetation in modulating erosion rates; derived sediment
transport equations for different bioturbation processes; developed a computer model
to predict the effects of global warming on hillslope erosion. Other interests focus
on how geomorphic parameters (eg, topography) influence chemical weathering rates
through their control on hydrological processes. Dr. Gabet has also investigated how
river channels process large pulses of sediment via field and experimental work.

Ph.D. 2005, Geological Sciences, Cornell University
Research is on: the intrinsic and extrinsic factors and connections responsible for
evolutionary change and extinction; integration of diverse data sets (such as molecular
sequence data and fossils) for the purpose of phylogeny reconstruction; quantitative
paleobiogeography using tools such as GIS; and systematics of Cenozoic gastropods
(snails), particularly members of the genus Conus (cone snails).
Professor, Geomorphology and Pre-college Earth Science Education
Ph.D., 1998, City University of New York.
Current research includes automated cartography, GPS (Global Positioning System) mapping
applications, GIS (Geographic Information Systems) analyses and remote sensing, especially
as applied to aeolian landforms and processes.

Professor, Structural Geology and Tectonics
Ph.D. 1980, University of Washington.
Research is on the tectonic evolution of the North Cascades; emplacement of plutons,
and processes in the deep levels of magmatic arcs. Current projects include: kinematics
and timing of deformation in the Cascades; pluton emplacement in the Cascades, Sierra
Nevada, and White Mountains.
