Research Statement

My research is in structural geology, regional and active tectonics, and geodynamics. My research involves field mapping, structural and geomorphic measurements, geochemical studies, radiometric dating, GPS for geomorphology measurements, the use of quantitative remote sensing in active tectonics, and physical and numerical modeling. Current research projects include:

1) Tectonics of microplate collision in southern and central Alaska.

2) Active tectonics studies in regions of normal, strike-slip and thrust faulting (Alaska and western U.S).

3) Applications of synthetic aperture radar and multispectral / hyperspectral remote sensing in active tectonics, structural geology and geomorphology.

4) Applications of GPS and LIDAR in tectonic geomorphology.

5) Experimental and numerical modeling of active faulting and folding.

Research Keywords, Regions of Interest and Languages:
