An interest for science and the changing size and shape of the Earth piqued my curiosity and led me to do a degree in Surveying and Spatial Sciences at The University of Tasmania (UTas), Australia. Upon completion of my degree, I was successful in gaining a graduate placement at Geoscience Australia (GA). I am now completing a PhD at UTas.


Surface deformation caused by earthquakes occurs as two processes: instantaneous and ongoing change.

Co-seismic surface deformation occurs instantaneously at the time of an earthquake, whereas post-seismic deformation occurs either as a logarithmic or exponential type decay motion after the earthq...
