Graduate Students and Post-Doctoral
Kasey arrived in September 2010 after completing her B.A. in Computer
Science and Environmental Science at DePauw University. Kasey's Ph.D.
studies are focused on the depth distribution of seismogenic slip in
the oceanic lithosphere.
Gisela Viegas Fernandes
Ph.D. 2009: Thesis entitled Earthquake Source Properties and Wave Propagation in Eastern North America
Gisela took a post-doctoral fellowship at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Earth Sciences Division
, in September 2009.
Maya El Hariri
M.A. 2008: Thesis entitled Seismicity Patterns and Fluid-Flow Observations From Reservoir Induced Earthquakes.
Waveform cross-correlation and relocation of seismicity from Brazil
to investigate the role of fluid diffusion in triggering earthquakes. Maya
went on to New Mexico Tech where she completed her Ph.D.
M.A. 2006: Thesis entitled The 23
December 2004 M8.1 Macquarie Ridge Earthquake
modelling of this large earthquake to investigate source processes and
seismotectonics. Katherine is now working at the University of Utah Seismograph Network
M.A. 2004: Jelena’s thesis involved Empirical
Green’s function analysis of small reservoir induced
earthquakes, including determining rupture velocity. Jelena went on to complete a
Ph.D. at UCLA
Ph.D. 2002, Harvard: While Karen was not officially my student, I was her
principal informal advisor. Her research involves using statistical
techniques to study the physics of earthquake interaction. Karen
is a research scientist at the USGS in Pasadena,
Takuji Yamada, Post Doctoral Fellow:
2005-2007 as a JSPS Research Fellow at Tokyo University. His research has focused on small earthquakes in South
Gold mines. He is now at the Institute of Seismology and Volcanology, Hokkaido University, Japan.
Eleanor Sonley, Post Doctoral Fellow:
January 2005 – December 2005. Eleanor worked on the source
processes of small, repeating earthquakes at Parkfield (California)
recorded by the HRSN borehole network. She then moved on to Binghampton University
