I make geophysical observations using ultra-dense seismic arrays, which offer a powerful new capability for imaging geological properties at high resolution over large regions and as a function of time.
The utility of these methods are broad due to the broadband quality of the sensor (a topic we are quantifying with instrument response assessments). Recent applications include hydrological system monitoring, vehicle noise studies to image the structure of the shallow crust, and seismic hazard assessment offshore. In comparing analytical and numerical models of physical processes with field and laboratory evidence, I aim to better understand the structure and dynamics of human-relevant earth systems.
In the next five years, I will continue to investigate basic and applied science questions in marine, cryosphere, and urban and suburban environments using distributed fiber-optics and other existing and emerging geophysical tools. Click the links below to learn more about this research.
