Dr. Dennis Harry is the Edward M. Warner Professor of Geophysics in the Department of Geosciences at Colorado State University. Dr. Harry earned his Ph.D. in geophysics from The University of Texas at Dallas, and M.S. and B.S. degrees in geophysics from Texas A&M University. He did his post-doctoral work at Rice University before accepting a faculty appointment at The University of Alabama, which he held until he joined CSU in 2003. Prior to his academic career, Dr. Harry worked as an exploration geophysicist for the Atlantic Richfield Exploration Company. He teaches Physical Geology for Scientists and Engineers, Applied Geophysics, Subsurface Geophysical Mapping, and Plate Tectonics. Dr. Harry's research focuses on geodynamic studies of continental rift systems and rifted continental margins. Current areas of research involve studies of the West Antarctica and Gulf of Mexico rift systems and development of microgravity methods to assess changes in groundwater storage.
