Resume (word format)



Geophysical Institute (GI): I recentntly finished my master degree with Dr. Jeff Freymueller . My research involves explaining the water level anomalies observed in Alaska after the 2002 Nenana Mountain, The Denali fault and the 2004 Sumatra-Andaman earthquakes. I also studied the poroelastic deformation associated with the Denali earthquake. I shall start my PhD in the University of Texas at Austin from 2006 fall under Dr. Mrinal Sen.
