I am a postdoctoral researcher in geophysics based at the University of Liverpool. My current work involves tomographic imaging of Lesser Antilles subduction zone. I have a broad interest in understanding active tectonics and lithospheric rheology through geodetic and/or seismic observations and modelling of earthquake cycle deformation. During my PhD, I looked at normal faulting earthquakes in two different tectonic environments, the Tibetan Plateau and Chilean subduction zone.
In addition to active tectonic deformation, I am also involved in using modern geodetic techniques to monitor other types of geohazard related deformation and human activity induced surface change. The key question I am trying to answer is what and how subsurface process controls the spatial and temporal characteristics of surface deformation.
