Research Opportunity in the Earthquake Seismology Group.

The quake group is looking for an undergraduate researcher to work on ground motion prediction. The position is supported by NSF grants and targets the prediction of ground shaking for several past earthquakes in 1) southern California, and 2) the Pacific Northwest. The data is curated by current group members. The research entirely relies on time series analysis; however, the student will receive dedicated presentations on the scientific context and nature of the project. Some level coding is required...

Title: Influence of fluid-assisted healing on fault permeability structure

Abstract:
Micro-cracks in fault damage zones can heal through diffusive mass transfer controlled by temperature and pressure. The diffusion of pore fluid pressure in fault damage zones...

Post-doctoral Fellow
Fischer Group

My research is focused on understanding volatiles in planetary interiors, with a current focus on nitrogen and nitrogen-bearing phases. I use high-pressure and high-temperature experimental methods to recreate planetary interior conditions so as to study volatile-containing phases in-situ using a variety of analysis techniques. My work aims to better understand how volatiles are incorporated into planetary mantles (both in the Earth and in other planets), as well as how planetary interiors are connected to the surface atmosphere composition through outgassing processes.
