Recovery of an ocean-bottom seismometer over Lo`ihi submarine volcano, Hawai`i, 2011
I am a seismologist whose research focuses on the seismic and acoustic signals associated with volcanoes and landslides. Current research projects include the seismicity and internal structure of Lo`ihi submarine volcano, the seismoacoustics of submarine eruptions, and the dynamics of submarine landslides. A bit more detail about some of these projects is available on my research page. I am actively seeking new graduate students with an interest in applying concepts of physics to studies of the Earth and volcanic systems.
Curious about the graduate school application process in general? I give an annual brown bag on “Tips and Tricks for Applying to Graduate School”, and it is now available as webinar: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yOpsdto6Nug. Feel free to contact me if you have questions about graduate applications in general, or on working with me in specific.
