Aron Meltzner’s research interests lie in active tectonics and in intricately related topics such as past sea level and glacial isostatic adjustment, which bear on questions of tectonic deformation at millennial timescales. Aron received a PhD in 2010 from California Institute of Technology, focusing on coral paleoseismology along the Sunda megathrust off Sumatra. Beginning in 2010, Aron was a Research Fellow (later a Senior Research Fellow) at the Earth Observatory of Singapore, where he began focusing on relative sea level on the Sunda Shelf and on the neotectonics of the Manila trench off western Luzon. Aron recently joined the faculty as an Assistant Professor in the Asian School of the Environment.
