About Me Publications
I received my Ph.D. in 2009 from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, then moved to Woods Hole, MA, for a Mendenhall Postdoctoral Fellowship. In 2013, I moved to Santa Cruz, CA, where I currently work as a Research Geophysicist at the USGS Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center. I grew up in Colorado and spent four years at CU Boulder for undergraduate studies in geophysics.

My research is focused on the following topics:
-Development and application of geophysical approaches to offshore earthquake, landslide and tsunami hazard assesments
-Marine paleoseismology
-Understanding the interplay between tectonic, sedimentary, climatic processes along continental margins.
-Combining basic and applied research to study the geomorphic development of continental margins, including substrate fluid flow
