Research

I am interested in the mechanics of fault slip and earthquake rupture. Much of my work has focused on slow earthquakes. I have run and examined friction models designed to produce these events in order to determine whether the proposed models can reproduce observations in Cascadia and Japan. I also use geodetic data to make additional observations of the short-timescale behavior of slow slip events in Cascadia
