I have been a member of the Center for Geophysical Investigation of the Shallow Subsurface at Boise State University since 1997 as a research professor. My research concentrates on environmental geophysics. I grew up in New Hampshire, but gradually moved west, first living in Montana, then California, then Wyoming. I got my PhD in Geophysics at the University of Wyoming using seismic methods to understand the crustal structure of Archean provinces. After a two year stint outside of Boston, MA, I moved to Boise and have become westernized. Of course I still root for the World Champion Boston Red Sox.
At Boise State University, I have focused on near surface geophysics to understand water flow through the ground and to investigate geological processes. Some of my research interests are crosshole tomography to map velocity distributions in the subsurface, electrical measurements around a hot spring system, and using GPR to image the internal structure of sand dunes for geomorphic studies.
