I am currently a Green Postdoctoral Fellow at the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego. I am interested in studying the structure and evolution of the lithosphere, the layer of the Earth in which plate tectonics takes place, with geophysical, primarily seismic and geodetic, methods. I am particularly interested in the continental lithosphere, as continental plates are much older, thus have a much more complicated structure and evolution history than oceanic plates, for which the current theory of plate tectonics usually fails to provide a satisfactory model.
