My research to date has focused on understanding fault mechanical behavior and strength evolution in relation to a range of lithospheric deformation modes, including earthquakes and episodic aseismic slip events, along major plate boundaries. Visit my research website for details. Also, link to Earthquake Process Group. 



Graduate study (MSc and PhD) and undergraduate research opportunities are available to work on a variety of earthquake and glacier deformation problems. Contact me for further information.
