I use active-source seismology together with other geophysical and geological data to investigate tectonic, magmatic and sedimentary processes at plate boundaries, including continental rifts and rifted margins, subduction zones, and transform boundaries.

Some current and upcoming research projects:

  1. BulletALEUT - Marine seismic imaging of the Alaska subduction zone

  2. BulletTAMAM - High-resolution marine seismic imaging of recent tectonic and sedimentary history of Marmara Sea

  3. BulletSUGAR - Onshore refraction study of the South Georgia rift basin

  4. BulletSEGMeNT - Multidisciplinary study of the Malawi Rift

  5. BulletGalicia 3D - 3D seismic imaging of the Galicia rifted margin (link to blog about research cruise)

  6. BulletEastern North American Margin Community Seismic Experiment - Onshore/offshore, active/passive seismic study of the mid-Atlantic continental rifted margin

  7. BulletIODP Expedition 381 - Corinth Active Rift Development drilling project

  8. BulletAlaska Amphibious Community Seismic Experiment - Onshore/offshore passive seismic study of Alaska subduction zone
