The primary goal of my research is to better image the structure of the earth’s crust and mantle in order to gain insight into the physical and chemical factors associated with internal geodynamic processes. Questions of particular interest include the nature of tectonic processes involved in the buildup and subsequent modification of continental and oceanic lithosphere; the determination of mineral and fluid-phase reactions in tectonically active regions; and the implications of core-mantle boundary properties on large-scale mantle circulation. In my research, I integrate new approaches to modelling seismic data with high quality broadband waveform data sets, including those from temporary seismometer arrays.
