Research Interests

My research focuses on planetary seismology. Part of my research is developing an algorithm to detect the Martian Core using data from the upcoming NASA Discovery mission : InSight. Until data becomes available, I use terrestrial seismic events to determine the quality and quantity events that would be needed to constrain the depth to the Martian Core, and other properties of the Martian interior structure. In addition to my work on Mars, I’m also interested in the Jovian moon, Europa. I’m trying to estimate the magnitude and frequency of events that are likely to occur from tidally induced stresses.
