Biography

Dr. Jeffrey Moore is an assistant professor of Geology & Geophysics at the University of Utah. Jeff's research interests focus on processes controlling rock slope failure, in-situ and remote monitoring techniques for state-of-health sensing, and investigating the hazard and impacts large landslides. Jeff spent five years studying rock slope hazard assessment and monitoring at ETH Zurich in Switzerland after completing his PhD in 2007 at the University of California, Berkeley.
