Biographical Overview
I am a 3rd year PhD student working with Dr. Nori Nakata. My research interest is in induced earthquakes, near-surface structure characterization and temporal monitoring. I am currently working on three projects: (1) Using Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) for monitoring changes in the structure and characterizing microearthquake sources. (2) Earthquake source characterization in heterogeneous near-surface structure using dense array. (3) Analyzing the deformation mechanisms at the brittle-plastic transition using acoustic emission in the laboratory. In my free time, I like paddling on the Charles river on my kayak and skating along the riverside.
