Dr. Francesco Civilini is a NASA Postdoctoral Fellow at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center. He obtained a BS and MS in geophysics from the University of California Santa Barbara and PhD in geophysics from Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand. Prior to joining the planetary science group at Marshall Space Flight Center, his research focus was on site-response seismology and ambient noise tomography and interferometry.

Dr. Civilini’s current research work is on the application of machine learning algorithms to planetary science problems. In particular, he is interested in combining local, non-local, and synthetic training data to detect planetary seismic signals and create lander-side event catalogs.
