Dr. Harry received B.S. (1981) and M.S. (1983) degrees in Geophysics from Texas A&M University, and a Ph.D. (1989) in Geophysics from the University of Texas at Dallas. He worked as a Petroleum Geophysicist for Atlantic Richfield Co. from 1983-1985, and was a member of the University of Alabama Department of Geological Sciences faculty from 1994-2003. Dr. Harry has held the Edward M. Warner Professor of Geophysics at Colorado State University since 2003. Dr. Harry's research focuses range in scale from basin wide problems, particularly in continental margin settings, to local issues concerning characterization of aquifer storage and physical properties. Geophysical methods used include gravity, seismic refraction, seismic reflection, surface wave dispersion (MASW), ground penetrating radar, and electrical resistivity. Dr. Harry was a participant in International Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) Legs 149 and 173 offshore of Iberia and the International Antarctic Drilling Program (ANDRILL) South McMurdo Sound project. Other major research activities have concerned the Macrodispersion Experimental (MADE) Site in Columbus Mississippi and unconfined aquifer sites in the Colorado eastern plains and alpine areas of the Colorado and Wyoming Rocky Mountains. Dr. Harry is a member of the American Geophysical Union, Geological Society of America, Society of Exploration Geophysicists, and Environmental and Engineering Geophysics Society. He has served as Associate Editor and Co-Editor of Geosphere, Secretatary-Treasurer of the GSA Geophysics Division, as a member of the Women and Minorities in Geosciences Committee of GSA, and Co-Chair of the Computational Infrastructure in Geodynamics Long Term Tectonics Working Group.
