I am currently in the PhD program at UC Berkeley working with Dr. Roland Burgmann in the Active Tectonics group and actively involved in the Berkeley Seismo Lab. I am supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, the Southern California Earthquake Center, and the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program.
Earthquakes and faulting are intricate processes that require multidiscipline approaches to fully characterize the deformation. My research is at the intersection of seismology and geodesy and focuses on the seismic response to transient deformation on active faults. I explore these problems using seismic and geodetic tools to calculate stress changes and explore earthquake rates.
