​Professor, ErSE


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.
