My name is Jean-Arthur Olive.
I am a CNRS Research Scientist at the Laboratoire de Géologie de l'Ecole Normale Supérieure. Before that, I was a postdoc at LDEO / Columbia University, and 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.
