GRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANT
Kelly is studying the Chile subduction zone using 2D seismic reflection data collected on the 2017 Crustal Examination from Valdivia to Illapel to Characterize Huge Earthquakes (CEVICHE) cruise. She is particularly interested in the upper plate structure and faulting along the margin and the subduction of trench sediments, which has implications for understanding distributions of megathrust earthquakes.
