Fields of interest: 
Mid-ocean ridges, oceanic crust, subduction zones, transform boundaries, multi-channel and wide-angle seismics

I am a marine geophysicist specialized in active source (reflection and refraction) seismic imaging. My research interests include mid-ocean ridge processes, the structure and evolution of oceanic crust and uppermost mantle, subduction zone processes and submarine strike-slip fault systems. I am also interested in airgun source modeling and underwater sound propagation. 

 

Current projects:

- Study of the structure, evolution and hydration of the Juan de Fuca plate along a ridge-to-trench wide-angle reflection-refraction transect (Endeavour segment to Washington margin) and Cascadia subduction zone structure in Washington

- 3D multi-channel seismic imaging of the axial magma lens and seismic layer 2A at the East Pacific Rise 9 50'N Ridge 2000 Integrated Study Site

- Bending-related faulting and subduction of oceanic reliefs at the southern and central Sumatra margin using seismic reflection profiles of the 2009 CGGVeritas survey and multibeam bathymetry

- Airgun source/ sound propagation modeling for marine mammal mitigation

 Cruises since 2007: R/V Langseth 3D seismic shakedown in the Gulf of Mexico (January 2008), 3D MCS cruise MGL0812 at the East Pacific Rise 9 50'N (June-August 2008), CGGVeritas - M/V Wavefield Inseis long-offset survey of the Sumatra subduction zone (May 2009), R/V Langseth JMS inspection (March 2011), Cruise 0C1206A on the Juan de Fuca plate and Cascadia subduction zone (June-July 2012)
