My name is Eric Kiser. I am part of the seismology group at EPS. I am currently working on a back-projection method for imaging earthquakes. My undergraduate major was in geology at the University of Illinois. Some of the topics we are covering in ES 240 I have seen in my undergraduate geophysics classes. I'm hoping to obtain a better understanding of stress and strain from this course, so I can apply it to physical properties within the Earth.
