I am interested in where, when and how fault slip occurs at active plate boundaries.  This can include large earthquake rupture, small-scale seismicity and aseismic fault creep.  Because much of my research focuses on subduction zones and mid-ocean ridge transform faults, I use various forms of marine seismic tools, including active source  seismic refraction and reflection imaging, and passive source (OBS) recordings of seismic waves. Occasionally I work in continental settings too.

Please visit my website (a work in progress!) for more information about my current research, teaching endeavors, and opportunities for graduate students at UW.
