About Me Publications
My research involves using geodetic and field techniques to better understand how faults release strain throughout the earthquake cycle from the surface to upper mantle depths.
I am interested in developing InSAR, GPS, lidar differencing, and optical image correlation techniques with field-based surveys to measure processes ranging from multi-segment co-seismic ruptures, aseismic transients, and post-seismic afterslip to viscoelastic relaxation.
I am particularly interested in understanding the mechanics of near-field co-seismic surface deformation, and how new and emerging geodetic datasets (e.g. optical image correlation and lidar differencing) inform us about tectonic processes at depth.
