My research focuses on developing techniques for tracking non-earthquake seismicity. By applying these techniques to seismic data across broad spatial and temporal scales, I analyze the patterns to investigate underlying earthquake and volcano source processes. I incorporate these techniques into automatic monitoring and alarm systems for regional seismic networks and volcano observatories.
