Cees Passchier is a geologist working mostly on the mechanisms that form the geometries of small-scale deformation structures in rocks. He studied at the University of Leiden, did his PhD at the University of Amsterdam, followed by a post-doc at the University College of Swansea. After a faculty position at the University of Utrecht, he joined the University of Mainz. His research mostly focuses on the development of deformation structures that can be used as tools to reconstruct flow in rocks and the nature and sequence of tectonic events. He worked extensively on shear sense indicators in ductile shear zones. He is co- author of “Microtectonics”, a leading textbook in the field. Besides his work in structural geology, he is presently involved in archaeohydrology, working on carbonate deposits in ancient water systems. He received the Stephan Mueller Medal for Tectonics and Structural Geology of the European Geosciences Union. He is past Chairman of TecTask, the IUGS Committee of Tectonics and is Chief Editor of the Journal of Structural Geology.
