Areas of Expertise

Currently active projects include studies of ocean-crustal faulting, the dynamics of continental rifting, evolution of forearc basins and accretionary prisms, and mudrock microstructure. Also many projects involve sailing on research vessels to study active spreading centers in various corners of the globe.

Dominik A Kardell , Ph.D., expected 2020 (Committee Member)
I am interested in the evolution of oceanic crust and the processes that affect its physical properties. I am currently performing extensive seismic velocity analysis using MCS data from the Crustal Reflectivity Experiment Southern Transect (CREST). My goal for this project is to characterize the velocity structure of the upper oceanic crust in the western South Atlantic, which has implications...

Jennifer Harding (Co-supervisor)
I am currently a 4th year Ph.D. student studying marine geophysics under the mentorship of Dr. Harm van Avendonk and Dr. Nicholas Hayman. I am using wide-angle refraction tomography to study the role of magmatism and tectonics in crustal accretion at the Mid Cayman Spreading Center, an ultra-slow spreading center in the Caribbean Sea.

Sebastian Ramirez, Ph.D., 2016 (Co-supervisor)
University of Texas, Austin
Sebastian was formally supervised by Brian Horton and Sean Gulick. He and I did a lot of work together on the Japan Margin.
