This is one of the 4 trenches I excavated for my master’s on the coseismic ground deformation of the 2013 Bohol Earthquake.
2013 Mw7.2 Bohol Earthquake Ground Rupture (North Bohol Fault/Inabanga Fault)
I’ve been involved in the documentation of the coseismic ground rupture of two very recent earthquakes in the Philippines— the 2012 Mw 6.9 Negros and 2013 Mw 7.2 Bohol Earthquakes in Central Philippines.
I do a combination of field- and remote-sensing based geologic and geomorphic mapping to identify key sites for determining the style, kinematics, distribution, and rates of movement of surface deformation features that I study.
Geomorphic map showing the trace of the Quaternary-active La Rinconada Fault Zone, San Juan, Argentina
This is a picture of a vial containing AgCl that we extracted from one of the carbonate samples that I got from a key site along the La Rinconada Fault (LRF) in Argentina. This sample is for cosmogenic radionuclide surface exposure dating of strath terraces offset by the LRF. This is just one of the many samples that were sent to the Accelerator Mass Spectrometer in Purdue University’s PRIME Lab for analysis.
I have been a teaching assistant (TA) at UofT’s Mississauga Campus since 2016 for lab courses in Optical Mineralogy, Petrology and Petrography, and Structural Geology.
