In this talk, I will talk about how we capture fault deformation from earthquakes and creep along the central Philippine Fault using satellite radar interferometry, and how that allows us to probe the mechanics of faulting and the recurrence of earthquakes.


Dr John Dale Dianala is an Assistant Professor at the University of the Philippines interested in understanding where, how often, and why earthquakes happen by studying how tectonic faults deform in time and space. He primarily works with satellite radar (InSAR) and GPS data to map and model earthquake sources and long-term fault behaviour, and tie these with paleoseismic and geological observations. He received BS and MS in Geology from University of the Philippines and DPhil in Earth Sciences from University of Oxford.


This seminar will be held using the video conferencing software Zoom.
