About me

I am part of the software development team for the next generation of the earthquake early warning (EEW) system. Currently I am responsible for implementation of a new Central Decision Module/Decision Module 2, a component of the EEW system which arbitrates between multiple EEW algorithms to arrive at a single, robust output ground motion prediction. This work builds on research and module design conducted by
USGS and Caltech. The new decision module will take into account the probability of each EEW algorithm's accuracy based on prior information as well as real-time, observed seismic data.
