Manager — Geophysics Group, St. Louis
Doug manages the geophysics group and is skilled at assembling and leading teams to accomplish large-scale complex tasks. He is knowledgeable about a range of geophysical investigation techniques and served as project manager for two projects that received Geotechnology Outstanding Team Achievement awards.
Additionally, Doug wrote a frequently cited professional paper detailing his experience as one of the first engineers to use multi-electrode resistivity instrumentation for karst exploration. He has been with Geotechnology since 1987, where he carved his niche as the primary geophysicist for the company’s first geophysics project. He has over 24 years experience conducting subsurface characterization studies and utilizing magnetics, electromagneticselectromagnetics, seismic reflection, seismic refraction, surface wave analysis (ReMi and MASW), VLF/EM, Spontaneous Potential and D.C. resistivity techniques.
Doug’s wealth of project experience allows him to identify hazards that would otherwise be detrimental to project outcomes, making him a valuable asset. He is a registered professional geologist in Missouri and Illinois and received a Bachelor of Science in geophysics from Bowling Green State University and a Master of Science in geological sciences from the University of California-Riverside. He is a member of the Association of Environmental and Engineering Geologists(AEG) and co-authored an AEG guidebook entitled “Karst Geology in the Area of South St. Louis, Missouri.” Doug is an avid runner and plays the guitar for his church’s praise team.
