Investigation of the wave propagation response of civil structures through observational and numerical experiments.
Development of ShakeNet, a wireless Stargate-mote, tiered, seismic structural network that can be deployed on civil structures with no existing infrastructure for monitoring structural state of health.
3D seismic tomographic modeling of crustal and mantle lithosphere beneath young transpressional plate boundary systems with application to the Transverse Ranges in southern California, and the Southern Alps in South Island, New Zealand.
Structural monitoring through community participation in the Community Seismic Network project that involves members of the community who host small, inexpensive seismometers in order to achieve deployments of tens of thousands of sensors in seismically active regions..
