My Work: I work on computer models of how the Earth's crust deforms. Because these processes are very slow and take millions of years to happen, in nature we see only the end result. Like Alps, for example. But some time ago there were no Alps, it was all flat land, and before that there was an ocean. By making mathematical models on the computer we can speed up a virtual model of, say, Alps forming, and understand in very precise detail what exactly happened that lead to the result we see nowadays.
