I use develop numerical experiments of subduction to investigate how slip and long-term deformation accumulate and interact at subduction zones during earthquake cycle. Including,
1. Explore the relationships between long-term strain accumulation and the seismic cycle.
2. Explore mechanisms that could explain how strain accumulation is modified in space and time by the presence of large asperities at the subduction interface.
