Seismology at multiple scales helps me (1) seek natural but anomalous soil properties beneath flood protection levees  (2) investigate hydraulic fracture propagation rates, and (3) evaluate soil properties on planetary bodies.

My undergraduate and graduate students tackle these issues through either analysis of field or laboratory studies in a seismic sand tank
