Sedimentation and Tectonics

Paul Heller

It is with great sadness that the department announces the sudden passing of our department head, colleague, and friend Paul Heller on July 6, 2016.

Professor Heller was a member of the UW community for 33 years. He is known for his dedication to undergraduate education, to research, to graduate mentoring, and to department service – including service as department Head since 2012. His professional contributions and impact extend widely throughout the geoscience and sedimentary geology communities.
