Research Interest


My research focuses on characterizing the seismic structure of the Earth’s crust and uppermost mantle to better understand underlying tectonic and magmatic processes primarily along active plate boundaries such as transform faults or subduction zones but also at rifted passive margins and ocean basin settings.  My research at Lamont has mainly focused on the study of the Alaska Peninsula and Hellenic subduction zones with an emphasis on assessing specific risks such as large earthquakes and associated tsunamis and the development of the Eastern North American passive margin.
