I'm a PhD student in the Institute for Computational and Mathematical Engineering (ICME) at Stanford. I've been a member of the Stanford Exploration Project (SEP) seismic imaging group since summer 2013, and am a student affiliate in the geophysics department at Lawrence Berkeley National Lab. I hold an MS in geophysics from Stanford, and a BS with a double-major in math and computational physics from UT-Austin.


Permafrost thaw monitoring

I collaborate with scientists and engineers from Lawrence Berkeley National Lab and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on seismic data processing for frequent monitoring of the near-surface to detect permafrost thaw, particularly under infrastructure using fiber optic distributed acoustic sensing arrays.

Repurposing existing infrastructure as seismic arrays

I work with my advisor, Biondo Biondi, and OptaSense to run a fiber optic distributed acoustic sensing array in existing telecommunications conduits underneath the Stanford campus. Goals of the Stanford DAS Array-1 (SDASA-1) include evaluating such a system for: near surface monitoring with ambient seismic noise, active seismic surveys, and earthquake detection. Read a little about the earthquake detection aspects of the project in IEEE Spectrum.
