About Me

I am a geophysicist in the Earth and Planets Laboratory at the Carnegie Institution for Science. My research straddles the boundary between volcanology and seismology, and focuses on understanding source processes of volcanic earthquakes, volcano-fault interaction, the structure and dynamics of magma transport and storage systems, and the nature of geophysical precursors to eruptions. My primary research tool is the analysis of volcano-seismic data and its integration with corresponding geodetic, degassing, and petrologic observations, which involves routine collaboration with volcano observatories worldwide. My geographical foci are in North, Central, and South America, the Pacific, the Caribbean, Italy, and Africa, and I have led field campaigns in Alaska, Oregon, Nicaragua, Mexico, Guatemala, Chile, Vanuatu, and Iceland.
