Summary

Research Interests

I study the geodynamics of the Earth''s lithosphere and mantle by using a combination of numerical, dynamic modeling, conversion of thermo-chemical structure into geophysical parameters such as seismic velocity and density, and comparison with various observables. I have applied these tools to a diverse range of topics, ranging from structure of the continental lithosphere, subduction and plume dynamics to seismic hazard
