Investigation and characterization of volcanic seismicity and seismo-acoustic signals: VLP signals associated with Strombolian eruptions at Mount Erebus, Antarctica; LP and hybrid signals associated with summit dome growth and magma movement at Soufriere Hills Volcano, Montserrat; syn-eruptive seismicity at Redoubt, Turrialba, Pichincha and other volcanoes.
Characterization of fine structure and fault/fracture patterns at geothermal and oil/gas reservoirs using injection-related seismicity and precise relocation methods; investigation of other induced seismicity and glacial seismicity.
Development and application of signal processing methods - waveform cross-correlation, adaptive coherency filtering, eigenspectral and wavelet-based analysis - for precise phase repicking in digital waveform catalogues, to improve relative and absolute hypocenter locations.
Investigation of different methods for event discrimination and classification, including spectral signatures, phase coherency, cross-correlation relationships, scanning correlation detector characterization and artificial neural networks.
Velocity structure modelling using both active and passive methods: Crustal modelling using large refraction transect in Alaska; volcanic structures modelled both with refraction and tomographic methods; regional scale modelling undertaken by application of various forward and inverse methods; improving station corrections for ground-truth enhancement and improved catalogue locations.
