Due to a lapse in appropriations, the majority of USGS websites may not be up to date and may not reflect current conditions. Websites displaying real-time data, such as Earthquake and Water and information needed for public health and safety will be updated with limited support. Additionally, USGS will not be able to respond to inquiries until appropriations are enacted. For more information, please see www.doi.gov/shutdown
I am a geophysicist that 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.
