CURRICULUM VITAE

Assistant Professor of Geophysics

Our work entails measuring the Earth's surface motions with millimeter precision and using computational modeling to understand the physical processes driving Earth's volcanoes, earthquakes, and non-seismic deformation. We tackle questions such as: How and why does the Earth move and deform? Why do continents break apart?
