Edward Brooks

Edward received his B.S. in physics from Johns Hopkins University in 2013 and an M.S. in statistics from Northwestern University in 2017. He is currently working toward a Ph.D. in Earth and planetary science under the supervision of Seth Stein at Northwestern University in Evanston, where his research focuses on developing techniques to assess the performance of earthquake hazard maps. His research interests include seismology, natural hazards, and data science and how the three can influence policy decisions pertaining to natural hazard preparedness.
