Gerard Thomas Schuster

Professor, Earth Science and Engineering
Physical Science and Engineering Division

Subsurface Imaging and Fluid Modeling


Education Profile

  • ​​​​Ph.D., Columbia University, 1984
  • M.S., Columbia University, 1982

Research Interests

Professor Schuster's research interests are in seismic imaging, interferometry, waveform inversion, EM methods, seismic field techniques, and the use of novel methods for super resolution imaging. His geophysical lab is equipped with state-of-the-art seismographs for 624 channel recording and a 72-channel resistivity array for both exploration, engineering, and earthquake applications. Schuster has a strong interest in geophysical characterization of archaeological sites.
