Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Computational Seismology group at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich.
I received my PhD in seismology from the University of Cambridge in July 2014. During my PhD, I studied the velocity and density structure of the lowermost mantle using Earth's free oscillations or normal modes. I obtained both my Master of Science (2010) and Bachelor of Science (2008) degrees from Utrecht University, initially following courses in geology, geophysics and geochemistry, before specialising in seismology.
My research interests include seismic tomography, normal modes, deep Earth structure and dynamics, uncertainty quantification in tomography, earthquake interferometry
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. Surface observations of Earth oscillations allow us to image structures deep below.
