Seismologist | Postdoctoral Fellow
Welcome! I am a seismologist and currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Department of Terrestrial Magnetism at the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington, DC. I’ll be joining the Department of Earth Sciences at University of Hawaii, Manoa as an Assistant Professor in late 2019. My research is focused on using seismic data to image the structure of the Earth's crust and mantle, particularly in subduction zones, to better understand our planet's underlying tectonic processes. I have focused on using receiver functions, active source reflections, and surface wave tomography to image the Moho, the plate interface in subduction zones, magmatic structures beneath volcanoes, and broader lithospheric and asthenospheric structures, but I am always interested in expanding to new techniques and locations. I am also involved in technique improvement and development for seismic data collected from ocean bottom seismometers, with particular application to broadband amphibious (onshore/offshore) deployments.
