I received my PhD from University College London (2017) where I studied fault interaction and continental extension in the central Italian Apennines. This focussed on comparing short-term historical records of earthquake with longer-term geological rates of deformation and exploring potential mechanisms for transient strain release, particularly focussing on the effect of co-seismic Coulomb stress changes. During my PhD, I also worked closely alongside colleagues at Birkbeck College, University of Leeds, Durham University and University of Bergen to use 36Cl cosmogenic exposure dating on active bedrock fault scarps in central Italy. My role in this project involved using ground penetrating radar ...
