I am finishing my Ph.D. in geophysics at Stanford University, working in the Crustal Deformation and Fault Mechanics group, advised by Prof. Paul Segall.
My research focuses on using high-precision GPS data and physical models to investigate deformation at the surface of the earth that occurs between, during, and after earthquakes in order to understand how strain accumulates in the crust and how we can use this information to better constrain seismic hazard.
For my PhD, I am investigating long-term transient deformation preceding the great 2011 M 9.0 Tohoku earthquake in northern Japan, using geodetic and seismicity data and numerical simulations of fault friction.
