Caden Howlett

PhD candidate interested in contributing to our understanding of Andean thrust belt kinematics between 32-35S as part of the TANGO project.  I have an additional dissertation chapter dedicated to the regional development of the Helena salient in west-central Montana.  My M.S. work was also in western Montana, focusing on the development of the Anaconda metamorphic core complex.

I am a field geologist who integrates geologic mapping and field observation with low-T thermochronology and geochronology.

For fun: running, yoga, climbing mountains, skiing, kendama, juggling, dancing, and EDM.  I'm passionate about science communication; check out my platforms below if you're interested:
