Research Interests: My research focuses on the investigation of fault structures, seismicity distributions and earthquake source processes. I integrate rock mechanics experiments, statistical seismology, and fault structural observations to advance understanding of the complex interaction between tectonic loading and fault heterogeneity as well as respective implications for rupture dynamics. My research aims to improve the documentation of fault structure and stress, based on micro-seismicity analysis at seismogenic depth where other observational methods are not feasible. My investigation of micro-seismicity is also important to monitor fluid-flow and the activation potential of faults due to fluid injection and waste water disposal.
