Speaker Biography
Dr. Jeff Marshall is a Professor of Geological Sciences and an adjunct professor with the Lyle Center for Regenerative Studies. He is a geomorphologist with research and teaching expertise in neotectonics, geologic hazards, coastal processes, fluvial geomorphology, and watershed restoration. Much of his research has focused on the tectonics and earthquake hazards of active plate margins, with multiple publications in peer-reviewed journals, and over 30 years of experience conducting field research in California, Central America, Mexico, and New Zealand. His fieldwork has included studies of active tectonics and landscape evolution, forearc deformation and seismic-cycle uplift, fault structure and kinematics, coastal geomorphology and sedimentology, volcanic stratigraphy, landslide hazards, and Quaternary geochronology. He maintains long-standing research collaborations with many U.S. and international colleagues, including the Costa Rican Volcanologic and Seismologic Observatory (OVSICORI-UNA) and the New Zealand Geological Survey (GNS Science). For the past 20 years, Dr. Marshall has been involved in the research and education efforts of the National Science Foundation MARGINS and GeoPRISMS Programs including funded coastal tectonics research in Costa Rica and New Zealand, serving on the GeoPRISMS Education Advisory Committee, and leading field trips, workshops, and student research symposia in Costa Rica, Nicaragua, New Zealand, and the U.S. He has substantial experience mentoring international undergraduate field research with both the Keck Geology Consortium and his own National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduate (NSF REU) projects. Dr. Marshall is a five-term Geosciences Councilor with the national Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) and former University Coordinator for Undergraduate Research at Cal Poly Pomona. He also serves on the California State University Council on Ocean Affairs, Science, and Technology (COAST) and is a member of the Water Resources and Policy Initiative (WRPI). In 2018, he received the Ralph W. Ames Distinguished Research Award from the Cal Poly Pomona College of Science. Dr. Marshall studied geology and earth surface processes at UC Santa Barbara (BA), UC Santa Cruz (MS), and Penn State (PhD).
