Neotectonics: geology and geodesy

I am fundamentally curious about how the Earth deforms over a wide range of time scales. I employ geologic and geomorphic techniques to understand how earthquakes on faults and folds build mountains over periods of thousands to millions of years. To constrain fault behavior and seismic hazards from deformation between earthquakes, I use geodetic techniques including leveling and relative sea level data.
