Meg Streepey-Smith’s scholarly work focuses on the evolution of mountains. “My students and I study these questions by analyzing rocks and structures that are part of very old mountain systems, so that we can answer questions about the internal workings of how mountains form and fall apart,” she says.

Meg regularly involves Earlham students in her research, and their work often leads to presentations at national conferences. She has led Earlham’s off-campus program in New Zealand.
