Karen Lythgoe is a seismologist, with a focus on subsurface imaging and earthquake hazards. She has expertise in both global seismology (using earthquakes to understand the structure and dynamics of the deep Earth) and shallow seismic reflection imaging. She has experience in the acquisition, processing and analysis of seismic data. She aims to use seismology to better understand Earth processes and the hazard posed from earthquakes.
