Craddock is a structural geologist. His research interests include the mechanics of mountain belt formation, rock strain analysis, the Keweenawan rift, mafic dike intrusions and Antarctic geology, and include using microstructural techniques to analyze rock fabrics and interpret geologic structures. EDUCATION: B.A., Macalester College; M.S., Ph.D., University of Michigan Craddock has been teaching at Macalester since 1989.
