Areas of Specialization and/or Research Interests

I am drawn to research questions that seek quantitative understanding of how Earth's crust responds to tectonic forces over time intervals long (regional tectonics, structural framework) and short (active tectonics, earthquakes).

I am fortunate to work as a physical scientist at the USGS Alaska Science Center in support of several projects whose emphases strongly reflect my own research interests. These include the Alaska Earthquake Hazards Project and the Western Alaska Range Project (WARP).
