- I am a member of the Crustal Deformation and Fault Mechanics group in the Geophysics Department at Stanford University. My research examines the frictional behavior of faults as slip nucleates and transitions into seismic rupture. To that end, I have developed numerical models that couple elasticity and frictional sliding to shear heating and diffusion of heat and pore pressure. My current work examines stress conditions required for slip to initiate and produce realistic earthquakes.
- In 2005 I completed an MS at the University of Wisconsin.

- Apple MagSafe DC auto/airline adapter—I have developed a solution for powering an Apple MacBook or MacBook Pro from a 12 VDC car cigar lighter or a 15 VDC airline in-seat EmPower connector. I currently present only a rough text description, but I will post detailed illustrated instructions shortly. Parts cost less than $100 and some soldering is required.
- General Motors Entertainment and Comfort serial bus—This page presents information that I have learned as part of an ongoing project to reverse-engineer one of the serial busses found in one of my cars.
- Automotive information—I am somewhat of an automotive enthusiast; I occasionally post something car-related on my web page. Lately, I have not had much time to update this information, so it mostly reflects cars I do not have anymore.
- Drill sizes and tap drills [PDF]—This information is in a million places on the Internet, but I haven't found any that display it in a useful format.
