My research focuses on advancing our understanding of Earth structure through seismic imaging using both ambient noise and earthquake data. With high-accuracy tomography models at both continental and local scales, my research is motivated by questions about tectonic processes at various tectonic settings, including sedimentary basins, fault zones, magmatic systems, and orogens. My other research interest includes using seismic interferometry to monitor subtle changes in basin aquifers and volcanos on societally relevant time scales.
