Haakon Fossen is a professor at the University of Bergen (Norway). His main interest lies in the field of Structural geology and Tectonics, and he is the author of the textbook "Structural Geology"(Cambridge University Press). His research interest covers orogeny and orogenic collapse, rifting, shear zones, transpression, fault growth and subseismic structures, and involves structural field data, remote sensing data, physical modeling, theoretical structural geology and geothermochronology.

Mary Ford is  a field geologist and principally interested on the interactions of sedimentation, erosion and tectonics from outcrop to regional scale in both in orogens and in rifts. Her approach involves mainly field based mapping, sediment logging, cross section construction and sequentialrestoration. She usually works in multidisciplinary projects, collaborating with specialists in many other domains to  best constrain processes in time and space. Her main field areas are the Corinth rift, the Pyrenees and the western Alps.Personal website:

Whitney M. Behr is Associate Professor of Structural Geology and Tectonics Chair at the Geological Institute, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zürich (Switzerland). Her main research interests are related to Structural Geology and Tectonics. Her research themes deal with subduction zones, Earth's early evolution, heterogeneities along subduction zones, lower crust and lithospheric mantle. Personal website:

Carolina Cavalcante is an adjunct/associate professor at the Federal University of Paraná (Brazil) and at the University of Tromsø (Norway). Currently, her main interest relates to the study of shear zone development and hot/cold orogens related to the Pan-African/Brasiliano and Caledonian orogenic belts. She has been using different approaches such as textural analysis (SEM-EBSD), digital field mapping, Anisotropy of Magnetic Susceptibility (AMS), and geothermometry (TitaniQ, Zr-in-Rutile, Titanium-in-zircon).

Michele Fondriest is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Padova (Italy) and will move soon to the University Grenoble Alpes (France) with a Marie-Curie Fellowship. His main research interests are the structure and mechanics of fault zones and their relation to the seismic cycle. He is addressing these topics by combining detailed field characterization of exhumed fault zones (structural geological mapping, 3D-modeling), mineralogical-microstructural-petrophysical studies of fault rocks, and rock deformation experiments.
