I am a Royal Society University Research Fellow in the Department of Earth Sciences at University College London.

My research interests include seismic tomography, normal modes, deep Earth structure and dynamics, uncertainty quantification in tomography, earthquake interferometry

In September 2019 I will join the Department of Earth Sciences at Royal Holloway University of London. Postdocs and PhD students interested to join my DEEPSCAPE research group there should not hesitate to get in touch to discuss possible projects and funding opportunities.

Doornbos Memorial Prize awarded by the SEDI Committee


At the 16th international symposium of the Study of the Earth's Deep Interior (SEDI), held in Edmonton, Canada, I received the Doornbos Memorial Prize for "careful and broad analysis of body and normal mode seismic data, integrated with mineral physics to constrain the state and dynamics of the lowermost mantle".

The Doornbos Memorial Prize is given in honor of the Dutch seismologist Durk Doornbos and is presented to a few young scientists every two years by the SEDI Committee, in association with their biennial meetings, for outstanding research on the Earth's deep interior.

Nature Communications paper on Earth's density structure

My paper on the density structure of the lowermost mantle was featured on the Department of Earth Sciences webpage. I also wrote a piece for the Conversation about our work. Imaging Earth's mantle Surface observations of Earth oscillations allow us to image structures deep below.
