Research interests

High performance computingEarthquakesFault mechanicsTectonic geodesy

About

The research interests of our group are tectonic geodesy and fault mechanics, with a focus on the physics of earthquake faulting and how faults interact with each other. My main tools are geodetic observations (GPS, InSAR, Strainmeter and Creepmeter) and physics-based numerical simulations (rate-and-state friction). We use high performance computers to run large scale simulations of fault movements, constrained by geophysical and remote sensing data. Main funding sources are the National Science Foundation, the Air Force Research Lab, and the Southern California Earthquake Center.
