Christopher Carchedi

I am a seismology PhD candidate at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Obsevatory of Columbia University. My research focuses primarily on imaging subsurface structure on a tectonic scale using surface-wave methods. I am most interested in lithospheric structure and evolution, particularly at plate margins.

Science is an active process and I enjoy engaging with every step, from data collection in the field to science communication and outreach beyond the classroom.

Fields of Interest

seismology, surface-wave imaging, ambient noise, plate tectonics, slow slip, science outreach
