I work in the field of structural seismology, particularly as it applies to deep Earth structures and the evolution of continents. My group focuses on the development of computational techniques to build models of the Earth's structure in order to address outstanding geophysical problems. Specifically, my work addresses the structure and dynamics of Earth's mantle; imaging the anelastic structure of the Earth; and imaging the crust and lithosphere. My group also operates the Quake-Catcher Network, the world's largest strong-motion seismic network built by connecting inexpensive seismic sensors to internet-connected computers. With more data, we hope to gain better understanding of earthquake ruptures and how earthquake energy focuses and defocuses in the Earth.
I co-teach a mixed graduate and undergraduate courses on deep earth processes called Journey to the Center of the Earth and Geodynamics. I teach a graduate course on Global Seismology. I also teach an introduction to computers for the School of Earth Sciences.
