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.

Keywords:

discrete element model, fractures, microstructural evolution


Research Summary:

My research focus is on numerical simulations of biaxial experiments using a discrete element model. I hope to understand the microstructural evolution in rocks from fracture initiation to failure and beyond.

Fall 2018
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.
