Geology

Román Ahumada Mexía

En estos momentos me encuentro realizando la investigación para obtener el grado de maestría en Ciencias en CICIMAR-IPN. Mi investigación va orientada a detectar desechos mineros (jales) a través de imágenes satelitales y el análisis geoquímico para determinar su concentración de arsénico, cadmio, plomo y zinc de las zonas de muestreo.

I am a Research Geologist with the US Geological Survey in Seattle, WA. I conducted field-based paleoseismologic research to understand the hazards associated with active faults in the western United States. During graduate school, my research centered on understanding the initial tectonic formation and subsequent flooding of the Gulf of California. I conducted field-based geologic […]

I study the plant life of the California Floristic Province, which shares many species and genera with the Sonoran Desert. I am especially interested in the plants of the “sky islands” in the Sonoran desert, as these tend to share much of their flora with the California Floristic Province. I am also very concerned with […]

Soy geólogo y vivo desde 1984 en Sonora, México. Obtuve mi doctorado en Geología Estructural en la Universidad Pierre et Marie Curie, en París. Mi tesis versa sobre la geología de la Península del Sur de Haití y la frontera entre las placas Norteamérica y Caribe. Después de trabajar durante 11 años en el Departamento […]

I study nature through the lens of chemistry. My research in the Sonoran Desert is focused on understanding what impacts water quality in lakes and streams and, in particular, what this might mean for the organisms that rely on these vital resources. Much of my work has focused on the oases in Cuatro Cienegas, Mexico, […]

I am a geologist with a particular interest in the tectonics and structural geology, and fault systems in the Sonoran Desert. My work involves understanding the plate tectonic evolution of the Gulf of California rift in Sonora, northern Baja California, and the southwestern US.

I study how geological processes affect biological evolution. In particular, I’ve studied to what degree flooding regions of the Baja peninsula and rifting of the peninsula from mainland Mexico have generated the species and their distributions that we see today. I have also modeled how sea level change controls estuary formation and distribution through […]

I am a joint-doctoral student in Evolutionary Biology at San Diego State University and the University of California, Riverside. I earned my B.S. in Marine Biology at the University of California, Santa Cruz and my M.A. in Biology at Humboldt State University. My research interests include historical biogeography, speciation, herpetology, plate tectonics, and genomics. For […]

My efforts are currently related with geochemistry, but I have also had the opportunity to work with LCA, water quality, design of landfills, mihi-hydropower, solar infrastructure and sustainability index development and System Dynamics in order to study lands as economic units.
