Terry Lee in the field

Terry Lee

Ph.D. in Geology


I graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2022 with a B.A. in Geography and a minor in Geology. At UCLA, I took part in several undergraduate research projects, including mapping the Whipple Mountain metamorphic core complex through remote-sensing methods, mapping the craters-ejecta relationship at Vulcan Planum, Charon, and applying geophysical method and remote sensing to characterize the critical zone and shallow landslides in Coos Bay, Oregon.

Currently, I am working with Dr. Andrew Zuza to study the crustal thermo-mechanical condition in California and the structural evolution of the metamorphic core complex in the North American Cordillera.
