Welcome to my website! I am a structural geologist at Colorado State University. My research interests are focussed on fault zone geometry, deformation processes and mechanics. I use a combination of field data, micro-structural observations and numerical modelling to investigate the stresses acting on faults, the processes that cause off-fault damage and the rheology of fault rocks.
