Expertise: Physics of seafloor faults, megathrust earthquakes

Emily Roland is a marine geophysicist focused on understanding where, when, and how fault slip occurs at active plate-boundary faults. She uses various seismic and modeling techniques to explore how the structure of the Earth surrounding fault zones influences earthquakes processes and aseismic fault slip. Much of her research is focused in areas that may be the source of an earthquake sometime in the future, including subduction zone margins like the Cascadia and Alaska megathrusts and Pacific mid-ocean ridge transform faults.
