I am a seismologist at the University of Miami's Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science. My research aims to increase our understanding of Earth's structure and earthquake physics by using seismic data. My group currently works on earthquake relocation, seismic velocity/attenuation tomography, volcanic seismology, induced seismicity, remote earthquake triggering, subduction zone earthquakes, etc. Please look around to learn more about what we do!
