Research Interests

  • I study the pattern, distribution, and effects of ongoing, regional-scale crustal deformation by using geophysical information, such as seismic, GPS, gravity, and InSAR data. My current research focuses on surface deformation as well as the spatial pattern of intraplate earthquakes in the Northern Rockies.
  • I also study volcano-earthquake interactions through the analyses of changes in stress field.
