miniCAST proudly welcomes El Paso High School Grad and National Acadamy of Science Fellow Dr. Thorne Lay 2018 Keynote speaker.
miniCAST welcomes El Paso's hometown hero, Dr. Thorne Lay, Distinguished Professor and Director of the Center for the Study of Imaging and Dynamics of the Earth at U. California Santa Cruz, home of the Banana Slugs!
Thorne Lay is Distinguished Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences at the University of California Santa Cruz. He is a seismologist, and uses seismic wave recordings to study large earthquake ruptures, internal structure of the Earth, and seismic monitoring of nuclear testing treaties.
El Paso's own Thorne Lay was elected in 2014 as a Fellow into the National Academy of Sciences and is considered one of the world's experts. If you want to know about earthquakes, Dr. Lay is the guy!
Dr. Lay is a proud El Pasoan and graduate of El Paso High School. We proudly welcome home a hometown boy that has made a distinguished name for himself.
