PhD Candidate at UC Berkeley
I am a graduate student in the UC Berkeley Active Tectonics lab working with Professor Roland Burgmann. I am also a member of the Berkeley Seismology Lab.
My interests are in tectonic deformation related to the earthquake cycle. In particular, I use space-geodetic techniques (GPS, InSAR) and seismic datasets (characteristically repeating earthquakes) to understand tectonic deformation. I focus primarily on deformation in Northern California, from the San Francisco Bay Area to the Mendocino Triple Junction.
