Broadly defined, I am interested in using passive source seismic techniques to image the structure of the crust and upper mantle of the Earth. My research goals can be summarized by the question “How are tectonic events manifested in the character of the lithosphere?”.

I have worked to developed new approaches to obtaining tomographic models that better image subsurface structure, primarily working with receiver functions and surface wave dispersion data, and have applied these imaging techniques in a variety of locations. My primary research topics to date has been on lithospheric-scale magmatic systems in the South American Cordillera, the terminal stages of subduction in the Tethyan system, and the longevity and relative stability of cratonic crust.
