Phillip G. Resor

My research integrates field observations, geophysical studies, and mechanical modeling to better understand lithospheric deformation over time scales from single earthquakes (seconds) to millions of years. Ongoing investigations integrate 3D imaging and numerical modeling with fieldwork in New England, the Southwest and Italy.

PHILLIP RESOR is an associate professor of earth and environmental sciences at Wesleyan University. A specialist in structural geology, his research focuses on a range of topics related to the geometry and mechanics of fault zones with applications to earthquake studies, planetary science, and oil exploration and production. Ongoing investigations integrate 3D imaging and numerical modeling with fieldwork in New England, the Southwest and Italy. In the classroom, Dr. Resor emphasizes problem and project based learning in courses such as physical geology, field geology and introduction to GIS. He is currently helping to develop teaching materials that use these approaches to engage undergraduate students in addressing societally relevant problems.
