My name is Jean-Arthur Olive. I am a postdoctoral research scientist at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (Columbia University), formerly a grad student at MIT / WHOI, and ENS / IPGP.
My research investigates the thermo-mechanical evolution
of tectonic plate boundaries by means of computational
and analytical modeling. I specifically study the interactions between tectonic, hydrothermal, magmatic and surface processes at continental rifts and mid-ocean ridges, as well as the dynamics of convergent margins.
