My scientific interests begin on Earth and extend throughout the solar system. Part of my research includes a range of aspects in relation to earthquakes: quantification of ground motion, inferring fault slip from remote sensing, and exposing the connections between fault structure and rupture propagation. Beyond Earth, I study the interior of Jupiter relaying on tidal perturbations caused by its moons Io, Europa, and Ganymede.
