I am a postdoctoral research associate in seismology working on upper-mantle structure of Southeastern U.S. My research focuses on upper-mantle and lithospheric characteristics of this region inferred from seismic tomography. My research indicates that the current lithospheric state of this region holds clues to the mechanisms that control dynamic topography, Cenozoic volcanism and intraplate-seismicity observed in this region.
