Hector Garza-Garza

Ph.D. Geology Student


Hector Garza is a Ph.D. Student at the University of Texas at Austin in the Jackson School of Geosciences. He obtained his BS in Geology from the University of Texas at Austin in 2016, and spent three years working in the Oil and Gas industry characterizing reservoirs using geochemistry (elemental and mineralogical data). Additionally, Garza managed an XRD laboratory where he researched clay minerals in hydrocarbon reservoirs.

My research interests encompass a broad range of approaches incorporating geochemistry, geochronology, paleontology, stratigraphy, and sedimentology to understand major geologic and evolutionary events in Earth's history.

Currently, I am researching the precise timing of early land colonization during the Ordovician, Silurian, and Devonian periods. I am also investigating the potential driving mechanisms influencing the transition of life from aquatic to terrestrial environments.
