I am an Assistant Professor at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in the Department of Earth Science and Environmental Change. My current active areas of research are i) using computational seismology to improve subsurface images of volcanic systems, ii) working with seismic data from NASA’s InSight mission to Mars to understand the interior structure of the planet, and iii) using machine learning methods to characterize seismicity. My main research goal is to improve our understanding of planetary interiors using both observations and numerical modeling approaches that have been enabled through advances in supercomputing.

I am currently looking to hire both PhD students and postdocs. If you are interested, email me at rossrm at illinois.edu.
