Students may work with me for either an MS or a PhD degree. Opportunities vary from year to year. For info about applying to our graduate program please see http://geology.missouri.edu/degree/gradapply.html. Possible topics of research include slow slip events, subduction zone mechanics, earthquake hazard estimation, and GPS geodesy. I maintain ongoing research collaborations with GNS Science New Zealand, and with the Rock Physics group at the U.S. Geological Survey. Most of my projects involve physical models applied to geophysical data, so my students need to have a solid foundation in math and physics, with some computer programming experience. Students who come from backgrounds other than geology, such as math, physics, or computer science are welcome.
I strive to maintain an active, collaborative research group. Collaboration is also encouraged with other students and professors within the department. Our department has four faculty members (including myself) working on solid earth geology and geophysics, and some research topics may overlap between our research groups. I also maintain a set of group guidelines that I expect my students to adhere to. The guidelines are available here.
