Dr. Jeremy Deans

Associate Professor


Dr. Jeremy Deans' research is focused on the formation and deformation of the lithosphere. Dr. Deans' research has mainly focused on the lower oceanic lithosphere in fast-spreading ridges, slow-spreading ridges, and ophiolites and in oceanic and continental arcs. The lower lithosphere is a zone of intrusion, cooling, and deformation. Dr. Deans' uses techniques ranging from microstructural analysis to petrophysical tools and bulk rock and mineral compositional variation.
Dr. Jeremy Deans attended Tompkins Cortland Community College in Dryden, NY with a concentration in Math and Science before getting his bachelors degree from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY with a emphasis in Geology. Dr. Deans then attended Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX working on the compositional variation in a granitic body in Nevada. Dr. Deans continued at Texas Tech University for his Ph.D. with an emphasis on the formation and deformation of the lower oceanic lithosphere.
