Alex Copley is an Earth Scientist, studying active tectonics from the scale of individual fault systems to large mountain ranges. His work spans observations of active deformation (using satellite geodesy, seismology, field and remote sensing observations of geomorphology), and numerical modelling to understand the underlying forces at work. Areas of particular interest include the active deformation of the continents and the rheology of the lithosphere.
