Postdoctoral Research Associate in Geophysics at the University of Bristol

Hi, welcome to my website. I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Geophysics at the University of Bristol, developing statistical tools to support decision-making related to seismic activity. My research interests include seismic hazard characterisation, probabilistic seismic risk analysis, and disaster resilience. I am currently working on improving understanding of the seismic hazard associated with shale gas exploration in the UK, in collaboration with Dr. Max Werner.

I recently completed my Ph.D. in Earthquake Engineering at Stanford University, under the supervision of Prof. Jack Baker. My doctoral research involved using various statistical techniques to benchmark, validate, and improve loss predictions of performance-based earthquake engineering assessment procedures. Findings from this research can be found in five journal papers.

I have degrees in Civil Engineering from Stanford University (M.S. 2016, Ph.D. 2019) and University College Cork, Ireland (B.E. 2014 - first place). I also have related professional experience in Atkins, U.K. My awards include the Stanford Graduate Fellowship, the John A. Blume Research Fellowship, and the University College Cork Science and Engineering Graduate of the Year Gold Medal.

Thank you for reading. I look forward to sharing my research and ideas.
