Research Seismologist (Engineering Seismology)

My research interests are focused on geotechnical earthquake engineering, engineering seismology, strong ground motion, and earthquake effects. Through analysis and understanding of past ground motion data, we can better predict the level and variation of future ground motion in metropolitan regions. Strong ground motion is a combination of the effects of the local site conditions, the source to path geometry, and earthquake source dynamics. Only by understanding all of these contributions can we better predict and mitigate the hazard from future damaging earthquakes.
