​Now in California


Research Interests

I study crustal deformation processes using remote sensing, geodesy, paleoseismology and geomorphology. Specific problems which interest me are: rifting processes and surface deformation, magma storage and transport in rift systems, evolution of plate boundaries and junctions, fault segmentation, and geomorphic processes.​
