I am currently the Director of Operations for the U.S. Geological Survey National Earthquake Information Center (NEIC). My primary responsibility is oversight of 24/7 earthquake monitoring. I guide the development and implementation of new policies and procedures used during earthquake response and catalog production. I also serve in the rotating role of NEIC event coordinator, overseeing the production of near-real-time products following earthquake disasters around the globe. Here is a nice article summarizing NEIC earthquake response, The 24/7 search for killer quakes.

I graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, with a B.A. in geophysics and received a Ph.D. in geophysics from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego. After receiving my Ph.D., I worked as a National Science Foundation postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Los Angeles. My research includes studies of the fine-scale structure of the deep Earth, characterization of Earth's seismic signals, and post-earthquake impact assessment. In my free time, I like to skateboard long distances.
