Daniel Kluskiewicz, a graduate of Penn State University (2010), was recently awarded a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship to support his graduate work at the University of Washington. Kluskiewicz participated in the IRIS Internship program during the summer of 2009 where he worked with Shad O'Neel of the United States Geological Survey and the University of Alaska in Fairbanks to deploy an array of seismometers and time-lapse cameras around the Yahtse Glacier in South-central Alaska. He then used the seismic data he collected, along with video footage and first-hand observations of the glacier's activity, to characterize the seismicity of different types of glacier events and automate methods of detection and analysis. Congratulations Dan!
The NSF GRSP program is a excellent opportunity for funding your graduate education. Thus, I would strongly encourage all our alumni to consider applying.
