One of my favorite parts of my job is the opportunity to work with motivated and ambitious students and postdocs who share common interests in geophysical problems, rigorous theory, and numerical modeling.

I offer numerous projects covering a wide range of subjects in Geophysics, Geology, Computational Science, and Mechanical Engineering:

• Hydro-​mechanical earthquake cycle simulations

• Fluid injection to study anthropogenic energy-related activities

• Subduction dynamics across the scale: from tectonics to dynamic rupture

• Earthquake cycle simulations with nonlinear viscoelastic rheologies

• Seismic swarms and aseismic slip

• Bringing solvers to extreme scale simulations in geodynamics/earthquake physics

• Develop high-performance software, and use it to facilitate cutting-edge simulations

• Converting algorithms, and implementation of parallel computing and shared memory libraries

Interested candidates should have expertise in continuum (solid and fluid) mechanics, numerical methods, programming, scientific computing, and some specific geophysical problem. 

Get in touch if you are interested!

  Code of Conduct  

Our group values diversity!

We are committed to justice and increasing equity and diversity. Our group welcomes people of all races, gender identities, sexual orientations, national origins, religion (or lack thereof), age, disability statuses, politics, and appearance. Harassment of group members is not tolerated, in any form. Research group members are expected to adhere to the code of conduct during all academia related activities.

The mission of our group is to leverage the transformative power of sciences education and promote diversity and inclusion through a framework of culture and talent, thus fostering innovation and education for our students.

We recognize that growth is continuous and not a one-time action, and welcome feedback on our actions.
