"The International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) is an international marine research collaboration that explores Earth's history and dynamics using ocean-going research platforms to recover data recorded in seafloor sediments and rocks and to monitor subseafloor environments." (IODP) More information about IODP can be found on their website:

Dr. Reece has been involved in IODP in many roles (shipboard scientist, shore-based scientist, panel member, proponent on drilling proposal, workshop participant, fellowship recipient, distinguished lecturer) for almost two decades. Dr. Reece's current research aligns with objectives in the new 2050 Science Framework: Exploring Earth by Scientific Ocean DrillingHer research group uses data and samples from multiple ocean basins (Gulf of Mexico, Cascadia, Nankai Trough, South Atlantic Ocean) acquired through the scientific ocean drilling program to understand physical, mechanical, and hydrological properties in ocean sediments and how those dictate the compression behavior for implications in overpressure generation, submarine slope failure, etc.
