Research Summary

My research focuses on the mechanical and petrophysical properties of upper crustal fault damage zones and their effect on fault behavior. I study this mainly from an experimental perspective, with a strong focus on coseismic damage caused by stress wave loading. To do so I am involved in the development and use of a novel impact rig.
