MSc in Geophysics – Seismology from University of Zagreb, Croatia (2016)
Passive seismic methods, receiver functions, Bayesian inference, Monte Carlo methods, body-wave tomography
Currently involved with two projects:
- Imaging the shallow structure near the Boliden Tara Mines site using passive seismic methods – we deployed a 21-instrument seismic array and collected data for a period of one year. The goal is to use this passive dataset to retrieve information on subsurface structure using different methods (high-frequency receiver functions in our case), and compare the results with available borehole and active seismic data.
- Body wave tomography using quarry blasts – we utilise a large number of man-made seismic events (explosions in quarries and mines) across the country for seismic imaging of Ireland’s crust and upper mantle
