Research Interests

Processes that deform the solid earth including those associated with the seismic cycle, migration of magma and water in the subsurface, tides, and glacial rebound; Tectonics and the relationship between short and long time scale processes; Glaciology, particularly basal mechanics and ice rheology; Ocean world tectonics and geodynamics, particularly Enceladus; Tools and applications using space geodesy, particularly GNSS, Interferometric SAR and gravity measurements.
