My current research is focused on high-resolution imaging and physics-based modeling of the earthquake source process.  I work with Nadia Lapusta on understanding the physics of the earthquake nucleation and rupture process through numerical modeling of dynamic earthquake sequences. In particular, I am interested in how fault zone structure and properties control earthquake source characteristics, as well as the spectrum of slip behavior observed around faults. I also work with Zhongwen Zhan on high-resolution earthquake source imaging using dense arrays to explore characteristics of the rupture process for shallow and deep earthquakes.
