About Kip Hodges

Kip Hodges specializes in multidisciplinary studies of the evolution of orogenic systems. His research tools are drawn from the fields of structural geology, regional tectonics, metamorphic and igneous petrology, isotope geochemistry, geochronology, and geomorphology. His field areas have included Baja California; the East Greenland, Irish, and Norwegian Caledonides; the U.S. sector of the North American Cordillera; and the Peruvian Andes. For the past quarter-century, much of his research has focused on the Himalaya and Tibet. In addition to his role as Founding Director of SESE, Hodges serves as the scientific director of ASU's Noble Gas Geochemistry and Geochronology Laboratories. These state-of-the-art facilities are designed to support a wide range of tectonics and geochemical studies, with special emphasis on the design and implementation of advanced analytical instrumentation for (U-Th)/He and 40Ar/39Ar geochronology and thermochronology.
