Dr. Graham's research centers on the origins, evolution, and energy resources of sedimentary basins, employing multiple methodologies on outcrop and subsurface data sets. A principal research focus, in collaboration with Professor Donald Lowe, is the characterization of deep-marine siliciclastic coarse-grained sediment accumulations (submarine fans). A second, long-running research effort lies in the tectonic evolution of eastern Asia (China and Mongolia), as reflected in the fill of sedimentary basins. A third principal research area is the relationship between mountain building and climate, especially in the western U.S. and Asia, conducted in collaboration with Professor Page Chamberlain.
