David Jacobson and Gabriel Lotto

Jacobson has a master’s in geology from the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand, which has become the world epicenter for the consequences of liquefaction. In addition to being part of liquefaction research teams while in New Zealand, he specializes in active fault research. He is a hazard and GIS analyst at Temblor. Lotto received his master’s in computational and mathematical engineering from Stanford University in 2014 and is currently a doctoral candidate in geophysics at Stanford, where his research focuses on coupled modeling of earthquakes and tsunamis. He also works part-time at Temblor. The order of authorship was decided by a coin flip.
