Welcome! I’m an assistant professor in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences at MIT, where I am starting a research group on fault mechanics and earthquake physics.
I am currently looking for enthusiastic graduates students and postdocts. Get in touch if you’re interested!
My group addresses a range of questions at different scales, from the mechanics of small repeating events to earthquake interaction on regional and global scale. We tackle these problems with a combination of numerical, analytical and statistical tools. In addition to furthering our understanding of earthquake physics, I am interested in ways to integrate the state-of-the-art knowledge into practical tools, and in particular models to use in operational earthquake forecasting.
