My research interests are in geodynamics and geophysics. Specifically, I am interested in continental tectonics and the coupling between lithosphere and upper mantle dynamics. I aim to investigate how the lithosphere evolves in the interior of a continental plate, how physical properties of the lithosphere control its behavior, and how surface observation (e.g., topography, crustal deformation, magmatism) can be used to understand present-day and ancient mantle dynamics. For this, I use a combination of numerical modeling and geophysical/geological observations to investigate the important factors and processes that control the evolution of lithosphere.
