Professor of Geophysics, MIT
Associate Director, Earth Resources Laboratory

Frank Dale Morgan obtained his BSc (Math/Physics, 1970) and his MSc (Theoretical Solid State Physics, 1972) from the University of the West Indies, Trinidad, where he was a Lecturer in Physics from 1970-1975. From 1975 to 1981, he completed a PhD in Geophysics at MIT. He returned to the University of the West Indies, Trinidad, as a Research Fellow in the Seismic Research Unit. From 1983 to 1985 he was a Research Associate in the Geophysics Department at Stanford University. In 1985, he joined the faculty of the Geophysics Department at Texas A&M University. He is now a Professor of Geophysics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences and associated with the Earth Resources Laboratory.

His current interests are in rock physics, geoelectromagnetism, applied seismology, inverse theory, environmental and engineering geophysics, electrochemistry, and electronic instrumentation. He teaches courses on the physics and chemistry of rocks, environmental and engineering geophysics, alternative energy, and inverse theory. He is the organizer and principal instructor for the course.
