Exciting news! We're transitioning to the Statewide California Earthquake Center. Our new website is under construction, but we'll continue using this website for SCEC business in the meantime. We're also archiving the Southern Center site to preserve its rich history. A new and improved platform is coming soon!

About Me Publications
Structural geologist, investigating crustal deformation by integrating field observation, geophysics, & geomechanics. My current interests are in 1) strain accommodation during early-stage continental extension [Natural Lab.: East African & Rio Grande Rifts], and 2) the structural styles and reactivation mechanics of basement-rooted faults associated with natural & induced seismicity [Natural Lab.: Central & Eastern U.S., Western & Southern Africa].
