Research interests Melissa's research interests are in seismogenic zone processes of subduction zones and investigations of Earth's structure and core-mantle boundary layer (CMB) structure using seismology. Her research has included local earthquake tomography of the Middle America subduction zone along Nicaragua and Costa Rica as well as the study of the Earth's CMB and its relationship to mantle circulation and dynamics. Additionally she has conducted research on fine structure in the Earth's deep mantle utilizing seismic waveform modeling and seismic data analysis.
