Grace Parker

Grace Parker is a Research Geophysicist at the USGS Earthquake Science Center.

My primary research focus is earthquake ground motion characterization, with a special interest in seismic site response. I develop models to estimate where and how much shaking occurs during earthquakes. These models can be used in applications like seismic hazard analysis, earthquake early warning, and aid in understanding how ground shaking is connected to physical earthquake processes like fault rupture and seismic wave attenuation.
