This briefly describes some ongoing projects.
Using strain patterns to estimate the amount of stored elastic strain energy in the crust, and the "earthquake cycle" from an energy storage-release perspective.
The primary focus is on the Cascadia convergent margin. I have been working with Dr. Curt Peterson on coastal deformation, and using continuously operating GPS stations to determine the deformation patterns at convergent margins.
Using data analysis methods to examine the spatial and temporal relationships of earthquake sequences.
Using data numerical methods to solve mixed fracture/flow problems relevant to foling and faulting.
