Robert Skoumal, PhD

I am a research geophysicist at the Earthquake Science Center in Moffett Field, California. My research focuses on improving our ability to characterize both natural and induced (“anthropogenic”) earthquakes. I am particularly interested in developing new methods to characterize small magnitude earthquakes, distinguishing between natural/induced seismicity, and seismogenic fault mapping.
