Home page of Susanne Buiter

I use a model-based approach in a range of projects spanning from sedimentary structures at Earth's surface to subducted slabs in the upper mantle, with the common goal to understand the underlying physical processes. My current research projects include numerical modelling of the formation and evolution of rifted margins, microcontinent formation, subduction and continental collision, code development, and analogue-numerical model comparisons.

I am a senior researcher at, and team leader of, the Solid Earth Geology Team at the Geological Survey of Norway. I am also member of the Dynamic Earth Research Team of the Centre of Excellence CEED, University of Oslo, Norway. For 2018-2020 I am the chair of the EGU Programme Committee.
