I am interested in the systematic and critical re-evaluation of pre-instrumental earthquakes using macroseismic and statistical methods. My current project is an investigation of the historical seismicity in Sumatra, Java and Bali to quantify and reassess seismic hazard in these regions. I am also using these data to constrain the magnitude and source region of the 1907 Sumatra tsunami earthquake. In the past my work and research publications have focused on quantifying historical earthquakes and their implications for seismic hazard in the Indian Subcontinent, Myanmar, the mid-western United States and in California.
