Edward Sobel is principal investigator in the International Research Training Group "StRATEGy" and holds a professorship in thermochronology at the University of Potsdam. He is responsible for running the fission-track laboratory 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 sense, his research has focused on basin analysis, sedimentology, thermochronology, regional tectonics and near surface processes, primarily in Central Andes and the Central Asia.
