I design and perform lab experiments investigating; the physics of rock friction and earthquake occurrence, rate- and state-dependent friction, earthquake nucleation, and dynamic earthquake rupture propagation. I am specifically interested in precision wide-bandwidth (DC to 1 MHz) measurements of; position, velocity, acceleration, force, strain and non-destructive ultrasonic testing processes.
