Research

My research interests lie in the broad area of seismology and emphasize two geophysical research topics, ambient seismic noise and subduction zone processes.  I am mostly interested in seismic imaging of Earth structure using dense arrays, rupture processes and controlling factors of shallow and deep earthquakes, and ambient noise imaging of glacier structures.
