About Me Publications
I'm interested in trying to understand active tectonics processes with whatever tools we have at hand, from understanding co- post- and interseismic deformation from GNSS time series and InSAR analysis, to characterizing long-term fault offsets in the geomorphic record with field mapping and surface dating. I have migrated from the field-based geologic side of Earth Sciences in undergrad and graduate school, to working with space-based measurements of plate motion and crustal deformation through graduate school and into my current postdoctoral work. Having multiple time-scale perspectives keeps life interesting when the geologic and geodetic worlds collide, and I find myself always being interested in geologic-geodetic fault slip rate discrepancies too.
