Research Interests: Many problems in geology and geophysics occur over extreme spatial or temporal scales. My research involves developing scaled-down laboratory systems to try to study these problems and utilizing field measurements to better connect these analog systems to nature. I am especially interested in exploring the role of heterogeneity in determining the dynamics, complexity and roughness of both faults and fractures, as well as problems related to damage, wear, and granular dynamics.
