New paper published in Nature Communications
My latest paper on mechanisms of induced-seismicity uses the Pohang, Korea 2017 induced earthquake case study to investigate pore pressure increase and Coulomb static stress transfer. We propose a comprehensive multi-process causal mechanism for injection induced seismicity. Check it out here.
Trip to the Yucatan Peninsula, January 2020
In January, colleagues from NIU and I traveled with high school students from Illinois Math and Science Academy to the Yucatan Peninsula to learn about water quality and use. We had a great time checking out cenotes and learning about the hydrogeology.
AGU 2019 is here!
Come check out my poster on the morning of Wednesday, December 11: Coulomb Static Stress Transfer of the Pohang, South Korea Enhanced Geothermal Injection-Induced Earthquakes; poster T31E-0342
My lab at NIU has a new member: a permeameter! I’m waiting on some electrical work to get it completely set up, but it’ll be ready soon.

IAGD Accessible Field Trip at GSA 2019
I had the opportunity to attend the accessible field trip to Petrified Forest National Park while at GSA 2019. The trip was a ton of fun with great people in a really awesome location.
