I am a postdoctoral fellow, at the University of Oregon, working on understanding the behavior of large faults during the different phases of the seismic cycle. My research interests include imaging the rupture of large earthquakes, studying slow slip phenomena along large faults and relating earthquake ruptures to fault properties.

Our group is monitoring the Rattlesnake Ridge, which is expected to collapse into a major landslide southeast of Yakima (Washington). The slide has started in December and has already created 250-feet deep cracks. It could release 3 million cubic meters of rocky materials.
