Christopher Koteas holds a PhD from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a focus in igneous petrology and metamorphic and structural geology.
He arrived at Norwich University in 2012 after a post-doctoral fellowship appointment with the U.S. Department of Energy and Massachusetts Geological Survey. His research focuses on the tectonic implications of magma generation, evolution, and transportation from the deep to shallow crust. He has research projects focused on related topics in the northern and southern Appalachians, eastern Maine, arctic Canada, and the southern Mojave Desert. His current laboratory research explores melt microstructures and microgeochemistry using scanning electron and transmitted light microscopy facilities in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Norwich University. Aspects of this work associated with undergraduate student research was recently presented at the 2016 National Meeting of the Geological Society of America in Denver. In addition to Introductory Geology, he teaches Structural Geology, Mineralogy, Petrology, Field Geophysics and Field Geology.
