I am interested in using earthquakes to gain an understanding of the various processes at work in an ocean basin in an entire spectrum of tectonic environments. Currently I am using active source seismology to evaluate the role of eustasy, sediment supply and continental glaciation that have built the stratigraphic record contained at New Jersey passive margin. Earlier in my research, I applied passive source seismology to examine fortnightly tidal triggering of micro earthquakes at the mid ocean ridge at East Pacific Rise..
