Nadine G Reitman, PhD (she/her)

As an earthquake geologist, I use numerical modeling, field observations, and quantitative analysis of remotely sensed data to investigate earthquake history of active faults and how earthquake history is recorded in a landscape. This work informs seismic hazard models and future risk.
