Will Fortin

Columbia University

Will works in marine seismology with the goal of pulling as much quantifiable information out of seismic data as possible anywhere within reach of human interaction, from the ocean interior to our deepest boreholes. He received his Ph.D. in geophysics from the University of Wyoming before moving the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University as a postdoctoral research scientist. Currently, Will is an Associate Research Scientist at Lamont-Doherty focused mainly on helping understand risks facing human civilization, both self-inflicted in the form of evaluating basaltic carbon sequestration potential and through natural hazards associated with submarine landslides.
