About Me

I am a Assistant Research Professor in the Department of Earth and Space Sciences at University of Washington specializing in seismogeodesy and hazards modeling. I completed my Ph.D. in Geophysics in 2013 at Scripps Institution of Oceanography.  I am originally from Chicago and I attended Georgia Tech for my B.S. in Physics and M.S. in Earth and Atmospheric Sciences. In my free time, I like to explore the Seattle area with my wife and kids, trying to find the best hikes and coffee. For my group website, see the UW Seismogeodesy Laboratory

The underlying theme of my research is to model earthquakes and transient deformation events rapidly and efficiently, using real-time, continuous, and campaign GPS measurements.  I am interested in problems across all spatial and temporal scales, and my work to date has fallen under the following areas:
