My goal is to understand the physics of the earthquake cycle from the time-scale of our lives (tens of years) to the time-scale over which topography is built (millions of years). I use a variety of satellite data sets: GPS, InSAR, hyperspectral images, DEMs as well as broadband seismic signals to study these processes. I also research the contributions of fault geometry and frictional properties of faults to tectonic strain accumulation; this is important to quantify the seismic hazard in a region. I am currently most interested in continental collision settings i.e the Himalayas and the Indo-Burman collision.
