Alison Duvall

Assistant professor, Department of Earth & Space Sciences

Flooding and landslides

Expertise: Hillsides, river channels, landslides

Alison Duvall is a geologist who studies how mountains are built and how the landscape responds to these processes. More specifically, she looks at how plate tectonics, erosion, and climate all work together to shape the Earth’s surface across both space and time. In addition to mountains, she investigates what happens when two blocks of Earth’s crust slide past each other (called strike-slip faulting), changing hill slopes, river channels and other features of the landscape.
