My current research interests involve signal processing, microseismicity and seismic wave propagation in anisotropic media. I collaborate intensively with the oil and gas industry on all of these topics. [My website] contains full information on ongoing industry-funded projects such as Blind Identification of Seismic Signals (BLISS) and the Microseismic Industry Consortium.
