Metamorphic Petrology:

Geothermometry, geobarometry, and geospeedometry based on the transformation of rocks in response to the changes in temperature and pressure, in particular to understand tectonism and heat and mass transfer in the Earth's crust, from the uplift of the Himalaya to the ultra-deep subduction of oceanic and continental crust to mantle depths and its subsequent disaggregation and partial exhumation; interaction between slab fluid and the mantle; experimental petrology.
