Macaluso, D.A., Bogolub, K., Johnson, A., Aguilar, A., Kilcoyne, A.L.D., Bilodeau, R.C., Bautista, M., Kerlin, A.B., and Sterling, N.C., (2016), Absolute single photoionization cross-section measurements of Rb2+ ions: experiment and theory: Journal of Physics B: Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics, v. 49, p. 235002-10, doi: 10.1088/0953-4075/49/23/235002.

My research interests are primarily in seismology and western US tectonics. I am particularly interested in seismic methods for probing the subsurface structure of enigmatic high elevation regions in the US such as the Sierra Nevada of California, and the Rocky Mountains and High Plains of central/western North America.

I am currently responsible for coordinating the deployment and installation of 14 telemetered seismometers in Weld County, Colorado for the purposes of monitoring induced seismicity. This includes continued maintenance and service of the network throughout the summer including data management, earthquake catalog management (including determining earthquake locations), and developing scripts for automated state-of-health monitoring.
