Earle C. Anthony Professor of Geology and Mechanical and Civil Engineering
My research aims mainly at understanding better earthquakes, crustal deformation, and geomorphic processes. We use field observations, seismological and geodetic measurements, remote sensing to develop kinematic and dynamic models and inform theory.
Currently active projects concern: seismicity and mountain building processes in the Himalaya; the imaging and dynamic analysis of seismic (‘regular earthquakes') and aseismic (‘slow earthquakes') fault slip; probabilistic forecasting of ground deformation and seismicity, in particular in the context of subsurface engineering operations (for CO2 storage or geothermal energy production for example); the effect of hydrology on crustal deformation and seismicity; dune dynamics on Mars and Earth.
