As one of the generation of scientists whose entire education and career has been enabled by IRIS, it is an honor to stand for election to the IRIS Board. The extensive community involvement in IRIS is a testament to its importance in enabling the progress of geophysics. The next few years are a crucial time for IRIS as it prepares for the recompetition in 2018 and the formal end of Earthscope. IRIS must carefully balance its resources during this time to ensure the continued excellence of its core programs while still being able to go after the new opportunities that our community supports. This time period will require extensive involvement of the Board and if I am elected I will be committed to ensuring the long-term strength of IRIS’s core programs. I would also hope to utilize my experience with onshore-offshore experiments such as the Cascadia Initiative in helping IRIS develop its plan for the ‘next big thing’ to follow Earthscope.
