Scientific and Technical Work
I am currently a Lead Scientist at Raytheon BBN Technologies in Arlington, Virginia. I hold a PhD in geophysics from MIT and have 30 years of experience in the fields of wave propagation, signal processing, and computer modeling. I have worked on a variety of technical problems including seismic, hydroacoustic and infrasound research for the monitoring of a Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, the seismo-acoustic detection of unexploded ordinance and landmines, the measurement of submarine hull and aircraft vibrations, shallow subsurface investigations, the modeling and analysis of acoustic projectors and signals, the classification of seismic signals and underwater acoustic echoes, image processing, ultra-wideband radar, and studies of T-waves & tsunamis. Projects for 2012 include seismo-acoustic, infrasonic, thermal, and laser vibrometry R&D. The following links provide more information.

Photography and Web Publishing
Besides my scientific & engineering work, I am an active photographer specializing in travel and landscape photography. I've done extensive shooting in Italy, Spain, Portugal, Turkey, Scotland, Germany, Tahiti, and the US. Many of my photos are available on the web; here are links to a sampling of my work.
