Stephen Bannister

PhD; BSc.

Stephen’s research involves imaging Earth structure and examining Earth processes using earthquake seismic waves. He investigates seismic phenomena (triggered earthquakes; low frequency earthquakes, seismic tremor) and images the heat source in the mid-crust beneath New Zealand’s geothermal fields and subduction processes using seismology approaches.

In the GNG Programme, Stephen will improve the coding and resolution of seismic models, and be involved in the integration of geophysical models to delineate supercritical resources.
