The primary goal of my research is to better characterize the structure and dynamics of our Earth through the study of seismic anisotropy. More specifically, I use seismological techniques (such as shear wave splitting and receiver function analysis) to interrogate seismic anisotropy in the subduction zone mantle wedge and within continental interiors. I have also worked on numerical modeling of subduction, in order to better understand the occurrence of small-scale convection in the mantle wedge and the parameters that control its onset.
