Research Interests

Induced seismicity and InSAR

Current Research

I graduated in 2018 with a B.S. in Geophysics at the University of Texas, Austin. The first year after graduating, I was a field engineer in South Texas working on rigs in the Eagle Ford Basin. The second year, I transitioned into a geosteering geoscientist position in Norway working with rigs stationed offshore in the North Sea.

My current research focuses on understanding fundamental mechanisms and competing processes of induced seismicity linked to wastewater injection wells. This includes analyzing seismicity data and fault parameters to determine the role earthquakes play in triggering more earthquakes in induced seismicity systems. As well as utilizing interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) data processing to study surface deformation
