Associate Professor; Program Director AuScope Earth Imaging, Australian National University

My research focuses on using seismic waves from earthquakes to understand the structural and dynamical evolution of the Earth. Most of my research is based at poorly understood but critical tectonic plate boundaries, in particular subduction zones where oceanic plates are descending into the Earth’s deep interior. These are regions where tectonic activity, as observed in seismicity and volcanism, is localized, making them natural targets of high scientific and societal relevance.
