Research

My research group studies earthquakes.  We develop and apply techniques for analyzing seismograms to understand how earthquakes work and to quantify the hazards they pose.  We have a longstanding interest in understanding the scaling of radiated energy with earthquake size and to understand the mechanics of earthquakes and tectonic tremor.  More recently we have embarked on a study of the mechanics of intermediate-depth earthquakes.  Some of our research aims to predict the level and variability of strong shaking in large earthquakes by studying weak ground motion in both the ambient seismic field and tectonic tremor.

Teaching

I teach or co-teach courses for graduate students in seismology and for undergraduates in seismology, earthquake and volcano hazards, and introductory geophysics.
