Research

My primary interests are structural seismology and tectonics. I'm working with Professor Rob Clayton to investigate the transition from normal to flat subduction in Southern Peru, using ambient seismic noise and earthquake data. I'm also working with Professor Joann Stock to investigate the continental rifting process in the Salton Trough of Southern California using active seismic data.
