The origin and alteration of oceanic crust and other mafic igneous systems. Dr. Marquez's expertise lies in hydrothermal systems of the oceanic crust that lead to the formation of metal sulfide deposits. Currently, Dr. Marquez and her undergraduate students are investigating the origin of the Baltimore Mafic Complex that is exposed in southern Lancaster County. In addition, Dr. Marquez works with students to investigate the relationship between geologic hazards and bedrock geology.

Community service:

Dr. Marquez regularly volunteers her time identifying rock specimens for the public, giving talks on the geologic history of the region, and working with Earth Science educators to improve the environmental and geologic literacy of the public.
