My research is in theoretical and observational seismology with an emphasis on seismic anisotropy. This property - the variation of seismic velocity with direction - can be used to infer dynamical and mineralogical properties in a variety of settings from hydrocarbon reservoirs to the whole mantle, and I work on problems at both ends of this scale.
My most recent research has emphasized linking seismic observations with predictions from experimental and computational mineral physics, applied to understanding the nature of the Earth’s lowermost mantle (see the CoMITAC website). This involves developing, implementing and applying both novel data analysis and forward-modelling techniques.
