I have always had a great deal of enthusiasm
for exploring the earth. During my career in the earth sciences I have
found that earthquake seismology offers some of the most prolific tools
to image earth structure. I have been lucky enough to work in earthquake
seismology for the past ten years in both the field and on the computer.
I have conducted field research in many parts of Asia including Pakistan,
Tibet, and Turkey. Much of my current research is focused on crustal
and mantle earth structure in the Middle East. I have participated in
or have lead research projects in Syria, Saudi Arabia, Oman, and Turkey.
I have listed some of these research projects below.
