    Use of geophysical imaging methods (primarily magnetotelluric and electromagnetic, also including seismic, potential fields) to study the structure, fluid distribution, composition, temperature and state of the Earth's interior from the near-surface scale to the deep mantle. High performance computation including massively parallel architectures. Instrumentation and sensor research and development. Conventional and alternative energy including hydrocarbons, marine hydrokinetic and wind, and geothermal power. Studies of fluid flow in cracked, porous, reactive media including seafloor hydrothermal systems.

    Current Research

    EarthScope Magnetotelluric Program Project Manager, directing systematic 3D mapping of the electrical resistivity structure of the continental USA.

    Novel use of combined geophysical and geochemical methods to study Enhanced Geothermal Systems (e.g. Newberry Volcano) in 4D to understand hydrologic impact of hydrofracturing, and to optimize geothermal production and reservoir longevity by combining 4D magnetotelluric/controlled source audiofrequency magnetotelluric observations with high density gravity, interferometric radar, and aqueous geochemical analysis.

    Studies of the fluid distribution and high resolution structure of the Cascadia convergent margin through a large scale 3D onshore-offshore magnetotelluric array.

    Investigation of the roots of the Cascade volcanic aarc in southern Washington State, at Mt St Helens, Mt Adams and Mt Rainier through a combined long-period and wideband magnetotelluric and active/passive seismic array.

    Detailed multidisciplinary investigation of the northern Mid-Continent Rift region in the North American mid-continent region, combining magnetotelluric, seismic and complementary investigations.

    Development of a new generation of ultrawideband electromagnetic receivers and operation of the US National Geoelectromagnetic Facility (NGF.oregonstate.edu; OpenEM.org), a series of national instrument pools operated by Oregon State University on behalf of the US academic community.

    Development of a "Multiphysics Bottom Lander" instrument combining wideband seismometer, electric field and magnetic field receivers and sensors with a high fidelity (32-bit digitizer) data acquisition system, acoustic telemetry, and a 4000m depth rated trawl resistant instrument housing with carbon fiber pressure housings to provide no electromagnetic field signature that would distort measurements of EM fields.

    Measurement of marine EM fields at marine wave energy converter facilities offshore Oregon.

    Development of algorithms to solve the forward problem of electromagnetic induction in the Earth that run efficiently on massively parallel sets of general purpose graphical processing units (GPUs).

    Development of non-Fourier based spectral analysis methods for timeseries influences by Earth and ocean tides.
