Sharon Mosher is an American geologist. She did her undergraduate work at University of Illinois at Urbana. After earning an M.Sc. from Brown University, she returned to Illinois-Urbana to get her Ph.D. in Geology in 1978.[1] Since 2001 she has held the William Stamps Farish Chair at University of Texas, and, since 2009 the Dean of the Jackson School of Geosciences at Texas.[2] In 2013 she became the President of the American Geosciences Institute.[3]

She was a founder of GeoScienceWorld, an international journal aggregation for geoscientists.[4] Among her awards and honors she is a fellow of the Geological Society of America, from which she received the Distinguished Service Award in 2003, after serving as its president in 2001, and an honorary fellow of the Geological Society of London.[4] In 2001 she was named Outstanding Educator by the Association for Women Geoscientists.[5]

Her primary research interests are in the evolution of complexly deformed terranes, strain analysis, deformation mechanisms, and the interaction between chemical and physical processes during deformation.[1]
