Professor Melbourne's research is focused on modeling seismic waveform and GPS deformation data. He heads the
Pacific Northwest Geodetic Array, which uses continuous GPS to monitor crustal deformation throughout the
Cascadia subduction zone, and in particular the slow earthquakes
which frequently occur along the Cascadia plate interface fault. He teaches seismology, geophysics, and introductory geology.
