Research Summary:

Jonathan is an applied geophysicist who works on problems in the environmental and energy domains including geological carbon storage, geothermal energy production, and near-surface hydrogeophysics. His group specializes in new acquisition techniques for timelapse seismology including distributed acoustic sensing (DAS), permanent source development, and ambient noise approaches. He also works on rock physics relevant to interpreting seismic datasets, particularly the properties of fractures, ice, and unconsolidated materials.

Research Summary:

My Master’s research will focus on reef upper slope morphologies in Belize and in particular focusing on identify drowned Terraces, Notches, and Overhangs and other morphological features, among them, drowned Barrier Reefs and Spurs and Groves. My initial research, starting in Spring 2019 semester and 2019 summer, will consist of processing the MBES data sets and then display the overall bathymetry of Lighthouse Reef upper slopes, develop some interpretation in terms of sea level fluctuations in the Late Quaternary mostly in the water depth range of a few m down to 150 m, and perhaps in the Plio-Early Quaternary for the depth range as deep as 400m.

Research Summary:

I focus on modeling Earth’s interior using seismic tomography, i.e. I use seismic data and numerical methods to image the structure of the Earth’s interior, with the ultimate goal of understanding the physical processes that take place inside our planet. I also put a particular effort into obtaining reliable model uncertainties and assessing the robustness of the features seen in those models.

Research Summary:

I am currently working on deep marine sediments to understand what impact climate changes (especially through Eocene) had on ocean floor sedimentation. My other interest is to tie up these deep ocean sedimentary dynamics with changes in deposition pattern in shallow marine setting in times of extreme warmth, like PETM and early Eocene Hyperthermals.
