Aaron graduated from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science degree in geosciences. While an undergraduate, he had a summer internship with the Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS) Consortium, where he performed shear-wave splitting analysis of aftershocks to determine variations in the local stress field. Also while an undergraduate and during the year after his graduation, Aaron worked as a research assistant in the Department of Geosciences at Virginia Tech on high performance mantle convection modeling aiming to understand catastrophic resurfacing mechanisms for the planet Venus.
Aaron joined CWP in Summer 2015 to work with his advisor, Prof. Roel Snieder. Aside from academic research, Aaron enjoys playing soccer, swimming, hiking, snowboarding, and eating good food.
Aaron's current research interests are in wave propagation and imaging in strongly scattering media.
