Research Overview

My work uses seismic waves to image the details of earthquake source properties and the structure of magmatic systems.  Relating these results to the physical mechanisms that govern the spatiotemporal evolution of slip on faults and the migration and storage of magma in the crust, as well as the hazards associated with these processes, is the primary goal of my research.  Below are specific topics that I've focused on in recent years.

M.S./Ph.D. Student Opportunity

I am hoping to add an M.S. or Ph.D. student to my group to work on an active/passive-source seismic experiment designed to image the magmatic system of the San Francisco Volcanic Field in northern Arizona.  If this project is of interest to you, please consider applying to the UA graduate program before January 5, 2024.
