Akademic interests

Mantle Geodynamics: My research is directed toward gaining a better understanding of Earth's dynamic interior. For this, my group develops 3D models of Earth’s deforming mantle, which are constrained using seismic and geodetic observations as well as geological indicators of past Earth deformation. In particular, we utilize observations of Earth’s topography, sediment cover, plate motions, mountain ranges, volcanism, sea level, and climate state, all of which change with time due to interactions with Earth’s deforming and outgassing interior. Our goal is to use these interactions to understand our planet's dynamic interior and its influence on the surface environment in which we live.
