Monica Barbery


Monica’s research focuses on the frictional behavior and strength of rocks during seismic slip. Her current research utilizes a high speed biaxial apparatus to experimentally deform rocks at accelerations, velocities and pressures approaching values expected in the seismogenic zone.
