I am a geophysicist with over 27 years of experience in controlled source seismology. My work in academia, government, and petroleum industry has involved imaging methodology development, and collection, analysis and interpretion of 2D and 3D multichannel seismic reflection and wide-angle refraction data. The data were collected on land and at sea for various purposes, from exploration to environmental, and at various scales, from engineering to crustal. I am a Principal Investigator (PI) and co-PI on projects funded by the US National Science Foundation; Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada; Flotte Océanographique Française; ExxonMobil; Canadian Foundation for Innovation; Marine Environmental Observation, Prediction and Response NCE; Nova Scotia Research and Innovation Trust; Offshore Energy Technical Research Association; LDEO Climate Center and Vetlessen Foundation; and other organizations. My current research is focused on continental rifting and crustal accretion processes at ultra-slow, slow, intermediate and fast-spreading centers, oceanic crustal evolution, subduction zone structure and processes, petroleum exploration at rifted margins, coastal response to climate change and seismic oceanography.
