Susan L. Beck

Professor, Global Seismology and Tectonics

My research involves using broadband seismology to understand mountain belts, earthquakes and faulting. I am interested in the evolution of the North and South American Cordilleras with much of my current research in the Andes. I am also working on earthquakes and Earth structure associated with subduction zones and strike-slip plate boundaries.
