Jessica Sousa's specific areas of interest are metamorphism and geochemical evolution during mountain building events. Her recent research has focused on using high precision garnet geochronology at a small spatial scale to measure the rate of crystal growth in order to determine the timescales involved with metamorphic events and their tectonic driving forces. Jessica has studied mountain belts from around the world including the southern Chilean Andes, the western Italian Alps, and the western New Hampshire and eastern Vermont Appalachians.
