William Harbert completed his MS in Exploration Geophysics and Ph.D. in Geophysics at Stanford University. His undergraduate degrees were in Mathematics/Geology (double major) and Geophysics from Western Washington University, followed by a post-doctoral appointment with the National Research Council (NRC). Since then has worked as a Professor of Geophysics at the University of Pittsburgh. In addition to research in geophysical monitoring of subsurface CO2, he has been a United States Department of Energy ORISE Research Associate and a Resident Institute Fellow of the National Energy Technology Laboratory-Institute for Advanced Energy Solution (IAES). He was a member of the Scientific Advisory Board for the In Salah CO2 Injection Project facilitated by British Petroleum and was an EGS Demonstration Project Phase reviewer. As an elected representative for District 4 of the Society of Exploration Geophysicist he is active in the applied geophysical community, a founding member of the Geophysical Society of Pittsburgh and is a certified petroleum geophysicist (American Association of Petroleum Geologists, Division of Professional Affairs). He has co-chaired numerous American Geophysical Union sessions focused on geophysical monitoring of Geological Carbon Storage, and was the 2013 AAPG ACE Geophysics chair. He has also served on the Pennsylvania Governor’s Commission on Mine Voids and Mine Safety. He has been most active in CO2 geophysical monitoring projects and conducted research activities in petrophysics, reflection seismic, hydrofracturing monitoring, induced seismicity and the analysis of cross well seismic tomography.
