John Shaw

Harry C. Dudley Professor of Structural and Economic Geology, Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, FAS

Professor Shaw leads the Structural Geology & Earth Resources Program at Harvard, an industry-academic consortium that provides data, software, and support for research. His team investigates the structure of the Earth's crust, using modern geologic and geophysical data, including 3D seismic reflection surveys and multispectral remote sensing imagery. Prof. Shaw's program in Structural Geology & Tectonics emphasizes: 1) studies of active faults for earthquake hazards assessment; 2) three-dimensional structural and velocity modeling for strong ground motion prediction, and; 3) development of new technologies for petroleum exploration and production.
