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?
