Andy Barbour received his PhD in Earth Science from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in 2014. Since then he has been a research geophysicist at the United States Geological Survey in the Earthquake Science Center. His research focuses on understanding how natural and anthropogenic processes (e.g. earthquake rupture, seismic waves, fluid injection & extraction) lead to deformation, seismicity, fluid flow, and pore pressure changes in the Earth's crust. He is particularly interested in observations near active faults and natural geothermal systems.
