External Fellow

My research interests centre on earthquake physics and seismic hazard analysis. I use a combination of numerical modelling and geophysical data analysis to improve our understanding of earthquake processes and estimates of future earthquake hazards. Current research focuses on understanding the mechanisms for earthquake clustering and probabilistic forecasting. Beyond earthquakes, I am generally interested in complex systems, particularly in methods for uncertainty and risk quantification.
