Short Biography

Research Geophysicist

I conduct research aimed at improving our ability to forecast hazardous events like earthquakes and tsunamis. Specifically, I study how earthquakes trigger others, how crustal movements cause earthquake stresses, and how to convert geologic observations of earthquake and tsunami processes into quantitative forecasts of use to planners, insurers, and builders.

Projects:

(1) Coastal and Marine Catastrophic Hazards

(2) Working Group on California Earthquake Probabilities (WGCEP)

(3) Editor, Journal of Geophysical Research, Solid Earth
