Understanding the physical processes that shape the Earth and other planets.

The Geophysics group combines experimental, theoretical, and observational studies to determine physical processes operating on and within the Earth and other planets. Our interdisciplinary research integrates approaches from geology, physics, mathematics, and engineering. Research topics include earth imaging, seismology, machine learning, rock deformation, geomechanics, earthquakes, glaciers, and volcanoes, with an aim to fundamentally understand the underlying physical processes and make robust predictions.
