AVO STAFF DIRECTORY
AVO is a very extended family. Some people work full time for the observatory, others well under half time. Others perform essential work, but only draw operating expenses. Several agencies contribute personnel at several locations. A wide variety of disciplines are represented, including geophysics, geology, glaciology, hydrology, geochemistry, remote sensing, computing, electronics, and administration. The following people are the paid staff, and share among themselves about 22 Full Time Equivalent positions.

I have been working for the USGS on various aspects of volcanology, eruption response, and hazard mitigation since 1983. My introduction to volcanoes started in college looking at Viking Orbiter images of Olympus Mons and other volcanic features on Mars. My first Earthly volcano was Mount St. Helens where I prowled the pumice plain in 1982 and watched wide-eyed as the lava dome above me erupted gas and ash. I learned a great deal about lava and volcano monitoring at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory in the early days of the Pu`u`O`o eruption and spent several years mapping the summit and southwest rift zone of Kilauea Volcano. In 1985, I enjoyed a month at sea on an ALVIN expedition to the active propagating rift system near the Galapagos at 95.5W. I moved to Alaska in 1990 where I have been a geologist on staff at the Alaska Volcano Observatory ever since. I've been fortunate to respond to and study major eruptions at Redoubt, Spurr, Augustine, Okmok, and a steady stream of smaller events in the Aleutian arc. My science focuses on deciphering eruptive histories, studies of young pyroclastic deposits and processes, and hazard assessment. Volcanoes where I have spent considerable field time with my AVO and academic colleagues include: Spurr, Redoubt, Ukinrek, Aniakchak, Black Peak, Okmok, and Little Sitkin. Being at an Observatory where there is an emphasis on eruption response, I've developed strong interests and experience in managing volcano hazard information, warning systems, interagency coordination, and volcanic ash and aviation hazards. Because Alaska is downwind of Russia, I work with Russian volcanology colleagues in Kamchatka and Sakhalin on Russian eruption warning systems. My professional interests and collaborations have taken me to Russia, Japan, Ecuador, Chile, and Iceland. I completed a two-year detail in Washington D.C. as a Geoscience Advisor to USAID's Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance where I developed and facilitated U.S. assistance in disaster mitigation programs abroad.
