Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI focus on the formation of cementitious minerals through the pozzolanic reaction in both natural (cemented volcanic ashes) and man-made (Roman marine concrete) formations. My research aims to link the formation of these minerals with changes in the elastic and transport properties of the materials. This can be applied to hyper-alkaline geothermal systems, pozzolanic cements and future materials.

I work to discover and understand the relationship between geophysical measurements and the rock and fluid properties that they sample in the Earth. My students and I have begun to understand the impact of rock type, porosity, pore fluids, temperature, and stress on seismic wave propagation and electromagnetic response. We are also working to quantify the links between geophysical measurements and the sedimentary and diagenetic processes that determine rock mineralogy and texture. Ultimately, this work allows us to better infer, from geophysical images, the composition and physical conditions at depth.
I teach courses for graduate and undergraduate students on rock physics--the study of the physical properties of rocks and how they can be detected and mapped using seismic and electrical methods. This includes theory, laboratory measurements, and field data analysis. I also lead seminars in which students present and critique their ongoing research in rock physics.
