Seismology - Source to Surface

Contact me


I am a Seismologist within the Source to Surface Seismology team, with a background in real-time and reservoir seismic monitoring. My research interests include rapid earthquake characterisation methods for earthquake early warning and hazard response; algorithm development for real-time operations; delivery of earthquake information to end users; regional and national seismic monitoring; microseismicity, induced seismicity and reservoir monitoring. I also have experience with media and public interaction in earthquake response.
