Associate Director of the Hawaii Institute of Geophysics and
Planetology, and a Professor in the Department of Geology and
Geophysics of the School of Ocean and Earth Science and
Technology (SOEST) of the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
He is a leader of the NASA Earth Observing System's (EOS)
Interdisciplinary Science (IDS) team
studying volcanoes, volcanic hazards, and the effects of
eruptions on the atmosphere.
His roles were the overall project management, interactions
with the Office of Technology Transfer and Economic Development,
incorporation of high resolution data sets into virtual
field trips, and educational outreach to community colleges.
