Areas of expertise My research interests cover global, exploration and theoretical seismology, with an emphasis on seismic anisotropy. Current research in global geophysics concentrates on the structure of the lowermost-mantle, continental cratons, mid-ocean ridges and subduction zones. This research involves concurrent data analysis and waveform modelling. In exploration seismology my interests lie in microseismicity, rock-fracture characterization, linked seismic and geomechanical modelling, and salt anisotropy.
