Hannah is a third year graduate student in the rock mechanics lab.  Her research interests focus on coseismic shear heating as a way to understand the energy release of earthquakes and the frictional behavior of sediments as a control on seismic character of subduction zones.  Hannah is currently working on developing an alkenone proxy for fault heating to understand the seismic history of the Japan Trench as recorded in an ocean drill core recovered after the 2011 Mw9.1 Tohoku-oki earthquake.
