Dr. Drew Siler focuses his research on structural geology and tectonics, with a specialty in geothermal systems. Drew's current research is on the use of geologic and geophysical data in order to characterize fault systems in 3-dimensions. This includes geologic mapping and working with a wide variety of data sets including drill cuttings and core, subsurface temperature data, seismic reflection data, potential-field geophysical data, 3D geologic mapping, and structural analyses. His research applies these tools and techniques to evaluate permeability distribution in fault systems and characterizing the geologic controls of fluid flow in geothermal systems.
