Bill began work on August 31st, and will help to support various program office activities, particularly including those within ANSS, which have expanded significantly in recent years. Bill’s efforts will be extremely important for the future success of our both our internal and external ANSS partnerships, and for our earthquake monitoring mission as a whole. 

Bill comes to us from the University of Iowa, where he has been an Assistant Professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences since 2015. Bill is a geodesist by training, focusing his research on active tectonics and natural hazards, and in particular on observing and characterizing the nature of active deformation from both natural (earthquakes, plate motions, landslides) and anthropogenic (induced seismicity) processes. 

Bill holds a B.S. in geology from Washington and Lee University, and a Ph.D. in geophysics from Cornell University. He spent two years as a Mendenhall Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Earthquake Information Center from 2013-15, and as such is quite familiar with many of the earthquake monitoring and response activities. When he’s not working on problems related to earthquakes and tectonics, Bill enjoys whitewater rafting, kayaking, fly fishing, watching baseball, and playing cars and trains with his 3-year old. He currently lives in Iowa City with his wife and son, and will be moving to Golden, Colorado in the near future.
