My research focusses on understanding and quantifying the fundamental physical processes controlling the occurrence of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and other natural hazards. I use approaches including seismological and statistical analyses, numerical modelling, field studies, and laboratory experiments.

A key goal of my work is to develop reliable methods for forecasting the nature, location, and timing of future events, and to build these in to holisitic disaster risk reduction strategies.
