Kevin works for the Southern California Earthquake Center at the University of Southern California, where he is also a PhD Candidate. His primary research interest is probabilistic seismic hazard analysis (PSHA). He is the lead developer of OpenSHA, an open-source PSHA platform, and of the Working Group on California Earthquake Probabilities. The latter develops state-of-the-art earthquake forecasts for California (e.g. the third Uniform California Earthquake Rupture Forecast) which are used as input to the building code, earthquake insurance rates, and the USGS National Seismic Hazard Maps.
