Research Interests

Global observational seismology with special interest in deep Earth structure and dynamics; the inner and outer
core, the lowermost mantle, interaction between the core and mantle; characterization of inhomogeneities
and anisotropy in Earth,

Lithospheric imaging using multiple geophysical data sets and developing new approaches,
e.g. joint modeling of teleseismic receiver functions and surface waves using Bayesian inference,

Physics of seismic sources; full moment tensor representation of non-double-couple
sources, explosions, impacts, volcanic earthquakes; modeling complex finite sources and ground motion using
various computational methods

Deployment of geophysical instruments in remote areas of Earth including oceans; installation of geophysical
instruments on other planets; planetary seismology.
