About Me Publications
Formerly Jessica Donovan
I graduated in 2015 with a PhD in Geological Sciences under Professor Thomas H. Jordan

I currently work as an earthquake source modeler for the (re)insurance industry with a passion for all things hazard and risk, including how we can mitigate risk through awareness, education, and preparedness. I am also interested just about all things earthquakes, but to narrow it down: I am interested in source properties (e.g., directivity, slip distributions, rupture velocity, etc) and how they impact hazard and risk, how fault systems interact, and how plate motion is accommodated in the transition between different types of plate boundaries.
