Srisharan is broadly interested in fault deformation and earthquake mechanics, with specific interests in the frictional behavior of seismogenic faults and interactions between slow slip events and elastodynamic ruptures. At UTIG, Srisharan works with Luc Lavier, Demian Saffer and Laura Wallace to better quantify the similarity between slow and fast slip events using experimental, numerical and observational constraints. He also studies the frictional and deformational behaviors of mixed brittle-ductile rheologies and their role in generating shallow slow slip events in subduction zones.
