I am a geophysicist who works with various geophysical tools and datasets, specializing in 2D and 3D seismic reflection. I received my Ph.D. at Scripps Institution of Oceanography and carried out my post-doc at the University of California Santa Cruz. I joined the USGS Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center in the Spring of 2015.
My research focuses on the development and application of geophysical processing and imaging techniques. I specialize in 2D/3D seismic reflection data and other geophysical data types such as multibeam bathymetry/backscatter and chirp. One of my current research focuses is on the application of artificial neural-networks to 2D/3D seismic attribute calculations for enhanced detection and visualization of geologic features, such as faults, fluid-pathways, and mass transport deposits.
