Research interests

My primary research interests involve the application of seismic tomography to volcanoes and fault zones aimed at imaging the plumbing systems of volcanoes as well as subduction zones. A second major avenue of research is the reconstruction of source processes of volcanic earthquakes, with particular emphasis on moment-tensor studies of low- frequency volcano seismic signals to investigate the eruption dynamics at volcanoes.

My current projects include:

  • Seismic imaging of the Laguna Del Maule volcanic field, Chile
  • Earthquake and ambient noise tomography of Makushin volcano, Alaska
  • Architecture of the subduction to strike-slip transition in New Zealand through earthquake and double-difference attenuation tomography
