(*principal or split co-supervisory role)

TAMARAH KING (PhD)*

Title: Geologic expressions of faulting and earthquake strong ground motions in intraplate bedrock terrains

What it’s about: Petermann Ranges earthquake fault rupture and bedrock outcrop damage, precarious landforms as deep-time seismometers, deep-time tectonic geomorphology, 3-D photogrammetry, 3-D printing, and shake-table experiments

HIWA MOHAMMADI (PhD)*

Title: Coulomb stress modelling of recent and paleo-earthquakes in Australia and New Zealand

What it’s about: Static stress transfer modelling to understand rupture processes in contemporary earthquakes and forecast rupture scenarios for future ruptures in south-central Australia and New Zealand’s South Island.

JESSICA VERMEER (PhD)*

Title: Rupture behavior, slip rates, and earthquake recurrence on the western Hope and Kelly faults in the South Island of New Zealand

What it’s about: LiDAR mapping of active faulting along the Hope and Kelly faults, paleoseismology, dendrochronology

SCHIRIN SELLMANN (PhD)*

Title: Neotectonic deformation in south-central Australia: geomorphic and geophysical expressions and relationships to crustal geophysical structure

What it’s about: Neotectonic fault-propagation fold evolution, controls of crustal structure on neotectonic faulting, geophysical properties of faults and fault-propagation folds, age and significance of Quaternary sediments in south-central Australia

HAIBIN YANG (PhD)*

Title: Lithospheric controls on the structural properties of fault zones

What it’s about: How lithospheric properties influence the morphological and structural development of fault networks, how fault zone displacement characteristics evolve in time and space
