Research interests

My primary research interests lie in observational seismology, in particular seismic anisotropy, and how it can inform us about the evolution of the dynamic Earth. Research projects typically involve combining field deployments, seismological tools and geodynamical modelling to investigate plate tectonic processes. Previous topics include mantle flow in subduction zones, thermal cooling history of oceanic lithosphere, deformation within subducted slabs, and the evolution of surface topography and drainage induced by changes in mantle convection.
