Professor Paul Somerville is Chief Geoscientist at Risk Frontiers. His main interests are in earthquake and tsunami hazards, and he has quantified these hazards and applied them in engineering practice to the seismic design and analysis of major buildings, bridges, dams and power generation facilities in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, the United States, and many other countries around the Pacific Rim. He has been involved in the development of building codes in the United States, and led developments in the engineering characterization of near-fault ground motions.
