My family and myself

Dave left ASU to accept a National Research Council (NRC) postdoctoral appointment at NASA in Houston. He now works for Exxon Production Research Co., in Houston, as a structural geologist. Before that he worked for Exxon affiliates in Australia, England, and Norway. They have been back in Houston for about 18 months now. “I am still married to Jane and have a 15-year-old daughter and an 11-year-old son. I have not thought too much about Hg geochemistry (his research topic at ASU) in quite a few years, but every once in a while I pick up an article about Hg contamination and wonder just exactly how they measured the Hg concentrations. Most of my work these days centers around mapping faults with seismic data and trying to predict the fluid flow characteristic of faults to oil and gas. It is interesting work, but doesn’t get me out in the field much.”
