My research is focused on studying dynamic shear failure and the physics of earthquake source processes. I currently work with Nadia Lapusta on better understanding the energetics of shear ruptures and how fault zone structure and properties control earthquake source characteristics, as well as the variety of slip behavior observed on faults. I also work with Zhongwen Zhan on improving methods for earthquake source imaging in order to explore aspects of the rupture process for both shallow and deep earthquakes.
