Meri at Kīlauea volcano


    I am a Field System Engineer and Analyst at the Infrasound Lab (ISLA) at the University of Hawaiʻi (UH). At UH, I am affiliated with the Hawaiʻi Institute of Geophysics and Planetology and the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology.

    At ISLA, I build algorithms for geoscience research, such as examining signals from the IMS Infrasound Network, or more recently, wrangling the data of the 2022 Tonga eruption.

    I earned a B.A. in Physics from Carleton College. During my undergraduate years I participated in physics research opportunities, such as exploring the complex dynamics of a laser, and geology research, such as analyzing seismic data from the 2018 Kīlauea eruption.
