Aubreya N. Adams


I am a seismology Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Washington University in St. Louis.  My research includes using seismic waves to study Earth’s interior, as well as studying the properties of earthquakes.  I am especially interested in studying features in the upper mantle beneath areas of active deformation and volcanism to better understand the processes creating and driving these features.
