Old USC bio:

My research focuses on the crust and upper-mantle seismic structure as revealed by broadband seismology. Throughout the course of my PhD at the University of Leeds, I used seismic tomography to image the lithospheric seismic structure in a region of incipient continental break-up: northern Ethiopian rift. In the same region, I employed receiver function analyses as a means of understanding crustal structure in Ethiopia.

Here in South Carolina my interests are the use of broadband seismological techniques with focus on the RUSH (Reflections Under the Scottish Highlands) and SNEP (Sierra Nevada Earthscope Project) projects. I also have ongoing projects in Ethiopia.

A copy of my CV is available here.
