Edward Sobel is the principal investigator of the G2.3 Project in the International Research Training Group "StRATEGy" and holds a professorship in thermochronology at the University of Potsdam. He leads the fission-track and the mineral separation laboratories. His research interest is constraining deformation and exhumation histories by using apatite fission-track thermochronology combined with geologic, topographic and climatic data with the aim of understanding the underlying tectonic history and the interactions between tectonics and surface processes. In a larger context, his research has focused on basin analysis, sedimentology, thermochronology, regional tectonics, and near-surface processes, primarily in Central Andes and Central Asia.
