My research interests lie in the broad area of seismology and emphasize two geophysical research topics, ambient seismic noise and subduction zone processes.  I am mostly interested in seismic imaging of Earth structure using dense arrays, rupture processes and controlling factors of shallow and deep earthquakes, and ambient noise imaging of glacier structures.

Please see my research page for a description of my research projects.
