Assistant Professor, Geological Sciences

My research focuses on structure and tectonics of the Earth's lithosphere using active- and passive-source seismic methods. I am currently studying the Himalayan Seismogenic Zone using aftershock seismicity data from the 2015 M7.8 Gorkha, Nepal earthquake. I also have experience or active projects studying crustal structure and tectonics in the northern Tibetan Plateau, West Texas, Sumatra Subduction Zone, and southern California. I have a strong interest in "large N" seismic arrays (incorporating many seismometers) and integrating active- and passive-source seismic data with other geophysical datasets.
