I am currently a postdoc at ISTerre with Michel Campillo, working on temporal changes in seismic wave speeds during fault slip. I did my Ph.D. at UCSB in Physics with Jean Carlson, and was a postdoc at Los Alamos National Laboratory with Paul Johnson in a position jointly sponsored by the Geophysics Group and Center for Nonlinear Studies.

My research focuses on a wide range of problems at the intersection of physics, geophysics, and materials science, and is highly interdisciplinary. I study how materials deform and fail, in particular multi-scale systems such as earthquakes, and integrate laboratory experiments, seismic observations, theoretical, and numerical studies to approach these complex systems.

My research interests, publications, and CV can be found to the right.
