Research

I am actively involved in research spanning three different earth science fields; experimental geomechanics, hydrology, and hydrogeology.  Explore the links below to find out more about my work in these fields.

Why are there deep earthquakes?  How are the polar ice sheets breaking apart?  How did the lineaments we see on other planets form?

Theses and other similar questions motivate our work in experimental geomechanics.  Simply put, we seek to understand how rocks breaks.
