apl. Prof. Edward Sobel, Ph.D.

Potsdam University

Edward Sobel is principal investigator in the International Research Training Group "StRATEGy" and Thermochronology Professor at the University of Potsdam. Next to mineral separation, he is responsible for running the thermochronology laboratories (incl. the fission-track lab and the helium extraction line for U-Th/He thermochronology). His research interest is constraining deformation and exhumation histories by using multiple thermochronometers 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 sense, his research has focused on basin analysis, sedimentology, thermochronology, regional tectonics and near surface processes, primarily in the Central Andes and Central Asia.
