Thomas Schouten

Thomas is a doctoral student in the Structural Geology and Tectonics group. He obtained his BSc and MSc in Earth Sciences at Utrecht University (the Netherlands). During his MSc, he forecasted the Somalaya mountain range, that will form 200 million years from now by convergence and collision of Somalia and India. He then joined ETH for his MSc thesis in numerical modelling of subduction and continental collision applied to the Himalaya and the Tibetan Plateau. After his MSc, he started his doctorate in September 2021, which aims to better understand the role of sediments in determining the velocity of tectonic plates using plate reconstructions and numerical modelling.
