School of Oceanography
University of Washington
I am a marine geophysicist in the School of Oceanography at the University of Washington. For much of my career my research has focused the use of seismic observations and numerical modeling to understand submarine volcanoes and mid-ocean ridge hydrothermal systems. Over the past few years I have become an advocate for the use seafloor seismic networks to track vocalizing baleen whales and I have also developed an algorithm to track acoustically tagged fish. I have a long-term interest in cabled seafloor observatories (the Regional Scale Nodes of the Ocean Observatories Initiative). I have recently become involved in efforts to deploy seismic and geodetic instrumentation in the Cascadia subduction zone to understand seismic hazards.
