Jeffrey Johnson is an associate professor in the Department of Geosciences at Boise State University. He holds a Ph.D. in geophysics from the University of Washington and an M.S. in geophysics and B.S. in geological sciences from Stanford University. Johnson’s primary research is focused on multidisciplinary geophysical study of eruptive processes using seismic, acoustic, optical, and other techniques. Johnson is also interested in all manner of infrasound research and studies the low-frequency acoustic signals generated by thunder, geysers and snow avalanches. Johnson’s funding from a National Science Foundation CAREER grant and from the Fulbright Scholar’s Program permitted him to spend 6 months in Chile from January through June 2015. His two children attended public school in the town of Pucon and enjoyed seven days of cancelled school due to the volcanic activity.
